All children deserve a safe, loving home. Unfortunately, there are times when parents cannot fully meet a child’s needs and it becomes necessary to temporarily remove the child from that home. It is usually in a child’s best interests to be reintegrated into his or her birth home as promptly as possible after the family stabilizes. When it is in the child’s best interest to return home, KVC leads the state in ensuring children are reintegrated into their home within 12 months.
When a court decides parents are not able to meet the safety and care needs of the child, KVC works to find relatives of the child who are able to care for the child or matches children with adoptive forever families.
Last year, KVC helped 1,030 children safely reunite with their 634 families after being in foster care.
