membership process

Thank you for your interest in KBIC!  We recognize that looking into membership in our community is a big step; we make every effort to ensure that the process is tailored toward your unique needs.  We are confident that you will find KBIC a welcoming and friendly place!

Getting started

Email our Member Services Coordinator, Crista Bellmare, at or call (603) 570-2026 ext. 224, if you would like information on how to become a member. You do not need a referral from a medical professional to attend. 

We will:

  • Answer your questions and give you basic information about our programs
  • Ask questions to learn more about you
  • Make a preliminary program eligibility determination based on your information and our membership guidelines

We encourage you to view the survivor video as you consider membership.  

Visiting KBIC

Once we’ve gathered initial information from you, we will schedule your first visit to a program day at KBIC, either in-person or online, during which you can spend as much of the day as you want observing and/or taking part in the program.  We’ll help you structure your day to attend groups of interest and make sure you meet staff and other members. 

Potential members typically visit KBIC twice prior to making a decision about membership.

Completing the Process

If you are interested in becoming a member, we’ll work together to complete the new member paperwork. We keep the process as simple as possible.
