- About Us
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 over 3,800 youth. Relatives, non-related kin like teachers and neighbors, and foster families are all critical to providing temporary care for these children and teens.

Your Help Matters
There are many large and small ways you can still lend a hand. Regardless of your size of gift, know that each caring touch makes a big difference in the lives of others.
When children and families use KVC’s outpatient services, they are able to access the medication management portion of our program.
Medication management is provided by one of KVC’s staff psychiatrists. These medical professionals will conduct a diagnostic evaluation of the patient, develop a comprehensive treatment plan that includes a choice of medication, and offer the patient a clear explanation of any diagnosis and recommended treatment.
The KVC medical professional and family members are all involved in the KVC medication management process when it is appropriate. We rely on feedback and invite active participation from all parties to assure the highest quality of treatment possible.
Due to black box warnings on many psychiatric medications for children, KVC has developed a medication tracking system for all children in our care. Regardless of provider, all children on psychiatric medication have their medication regimen reviewed on a monthly basis by KVC’s medical director. This process ensures the safety of children on medications and helps to reduce the risk of over-medication of children.
Medication management is available using telepsychiatry via an audio/video connection for children and families in rural areas.
