Children and teens belong with their own families whenever possible. KVC works to safely reintegrate hundreds of families each year by providing parenting skills training, therapy and other support.
Caring People Needed
On any given day, KVC Kansas provides out-of-home care for thousands of youth. Relatives, non-related kin like teachers and neighbors, and foster families are all critical to providing temporary care for these children and teens.

About KVC Kansas
KVC Kansas is a private, nonprofit organization that serves over 15,000 children and adults each year. Our team of professionals provides family strengthening and preventative services, parent training, foster care case management, family reunification services, foster family recruitment and support, adoption, aftercare, outpatient therapy and more.
We envision a world in which every person is safe and connected to a strong family and a healthy community.
Adoptive families provide a safe and nurturing home for children who cannot safely return to their birth family. Hundreds of children in Kansas are currently waiting for a loving adoptive home, and you can meet some of these children on the KVC Adoption Website. Most children who are adopted through KVC are adopted by their foster parents or a relative who has been providing care.
KVC provides families with preparation, resources, support, and events during the adoption journey to facilitate successful adoptions.
The greatest need for permanent, loving homes is for older children and sibling groups. We work by the mantra that “Children Can’t Wait.” KVC focuses on locating and selecting the best possible family for a child, rather than finding a child for a specific family.
Who needs to be adopted?
The children available for adoption through KVC are often:
- Age 10 and above
- Part of a sibling set of three or more who needs to be adopted together
- Have unique needs
While young children and babies do enter state custody, our first goal is to try and safely reunite the child with his or her birth parents. If reunification is not possible, relatives and familiar caregivers are the next best choice to care for them. Here is a list of agencies that specialize in adoptions of toddlers and babies:
- Adoption and Beyond
- American Adoptions
- Catholic Charities
- Choice Adoptions
- From Heart to Home (through KCSL)
- Lifeline Children’s Service
Please consider becoming an adoptive family for children without a place to call home. You will be opening the door to countless opportunities for a child in need.
