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.
KVC works in “child’s time.” One day away from home is a long time for a child. Our licensed professionals work diligently and quickly to provide excellent care for families, and identify necessary resources to create safe and permanent homes for children.
At KVC, the care of children and families is managed by licensed professionals, most of whom are master’s level social workers. These professionals oversee all services to achieve safe and timely permanency. Our staff members assess children’s medical, educational and behavioral healthcare needs and follow up with appropriate recommendations for care, while assuring all necessary services are obtained. Our professionals identify family members and other interested parties who form a group to strategize, create a plan and coordinate care for the child, with the ultimate goal of achieving a safe and permanent home. We operate with a philosophy of family-centered practice, and our licensed staff maintains consistent and frequent contact with families to assess progress and home safety.
KVC case managers also have the resources of KVC’s kinship care coordinators, resource coordinators, intensive in-home therapists and aftercare coordinators to assist with meeting all the needs of the child and family.
