Kim Hemmert

Grants Manager | Idaho Children's Trust Fund

Kim started as the Grants Manager for the Trust Fund in August 2021.  She completed her practicum at ICTF while pursuing her master’s degree in Social Work from Boise State University and has returned to join the staff. Her previous experience with Head Start and Early Head Start helped her understand why healthy brain development and attachment is so critical in the early years of life. She was a foster parent for the state of Idaho for six years. During that time, she had many opportunities to collaborate in the reunification and adoption process. While serving on the Keeping Children Safe Panel, she assisted in making recommendations to legislators regarding children in foster care. It became clearer to her that kids need a safe, stable, and nurturing home in order to thrive. Kim is married and has two beautiful children. She likes Zumba, yoga, listening to audiobooks, and volunteers at the Boise Little Theatre. She is passionate about the wellbeing of children and families as well as eliminating food waste.
