A Message From Kirk Knight, Founder

TheKnight-Foundation was created in honor of my son Trevor J. Knight. He was brilliant, talented, loving, gentle, and had a heart of gold. Trevor battled with addiction for a number of years. Two weeks prior to his 21st birthday, he lost his battle with addiction by a horrific and tragic overdose.


The foundation is committed to honoring my son by helping those who are suffering from addiction. Ultimately, we want to save lives. To accomplish this, we must bring awareness of this epidemic to every corner of the country, teardown stigmas related to addiction, educate the public on what they can do, work towards prevention within the schools/churches/and community, and assist family and friends that have lost loved ones. 


Through Gods strength and the support of an extensive network of amazing family and friends, TheKnight-Foundation was founded. TheKnight-Foundation looks forward to working with you to join this fight and be a partner in saving our loved ones from this evil disease.


We can’t bring my son back, but we can change how we move forward.
