Eligibility Check

Let’s start by checking your eligibility to participate in our program.


Wigs For Kids is a private charity organization, meaning the federal government does not fund us. We are a Section 501 (c)(3) non-profit serving children.

Qualifications or who can apply are listed below. 

  1. Is your child 18 or younger?
  2. Does your child have medical-related hair loss?
  3. Are you seeking a full cap hair system for hair loss?
  4. Are you located in the US or Canada?
  5. Are you willing and able to follow a several-step process to participate in the program?
  6. Understand that the program can take several months to completion.
  7. You have yet to participate in the program within the last year.

Please consider that we have a very small staff with no language translation service. If language translation services are needed, we request that the family secure an advocate to navigate through the steps of the program. This representative can be an adult family member, teacher, or friend. Please confirm with this advocate and have them call or email us for or 440.333.4433 option 5.

If you answered yes to all the questions, we invite you to click through each dropdown in the Recipient Program Tab to check out the steps involved in participating in the program. Please carefully review the pages before submitting the online application intake form and before mailing support documentation to our office. Thank you for your understanding and diligence!


Is the Wigs For Kids service the solution I am looking for? Is it right for my child?

Our hair replacement systems are designed to conceal complete hair loss or minimal hair growth due to medical reasons, including therapy treatments (e.g., chemotherapy, radiation), damage to the scalp caused by burns, scarring, alopecia, or trichotillomania. If your child suffers from partial hair loss, an evaluation will help us determine if our full cap solution can meet their needs. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to the Program Administration at
