The National Hydrocephalus Foundation (NHF) was incorporated in the state of Illinois in 1979 as a voluntary, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), public service organization.
The objectives of NHF are:

- To help others gain a deeper understanding of those areas affected by hydrocephalus, such as education, insurance, tax and estate planning, employment and family
- To increase public awareness and knowledge of hydrocephalus
- To promote and support research on the causes, treatment and prevention of hydrocephalus
- In addition to providing the public with informational brochures, NHF offers a variety of help guides, maintains a reference library, videos/CD's on hydrocephalus, has support groups, will assist others in starting an NHF support group in their area, and publishes a quarterly newsletter, Life~Line.
