Our Background

The Kyle Goldberg Memorial Foundation has been created after his tragic death in July, 2004. Like many young adults, Kyle suffered from an addiction to drugs. Our family struggles to understand how a well adjusted, bright, energetic, athletic, and promising person could fall prey to the power of drugs.

It is with the establishment of this Memorial Foundation we hope to help other young adults who struggle with this problem.
