The Kaitlin Murphy Foundation (KMF) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring awareness to the addiction epidemic, form a Community of Fighters to join the battle, and raise the funds needed to support addiction-fighting charities and causes already doing the good work on the ground level.
The Murphy family started the foundation in June 2017 in memory of their daughter and sister Kaitlin, who lost her battle with heroin addiction in May 2012 at the age of 23.
They have spent six years grieving the loss of their beautiful Kaitlin and miss her every day; but they found the strength to fight back against addiction in her honor.
The Kaitlin Murphy Foundation’s Advisory Board of Directors is proud to support recovery efforts in Bucks County police departments (BPAIR program), a mentoring program for youth impacted by substance abuse (Eluna’s Camp Mariposa), a recovery program for incarcerated women (HEART Program at BC Correctional Facility), a creative arts program at a women’s recovery facility (Libertae in Bensalem), and KMF looks forward to supporting several new addiction prevention and recovery programs in 2019.
KMF has been recognized on the floor of the House of US Representatives (Congress) for the work and accomplishments they have achieved in the community.
While they wish Kaitlin were still here with them, the Murphy family is comforted when they see a butterfly because they know that she is with them, smiling down on them, and are so proud of the battle they’re fighting in her memory.
