- 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.
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.
