Our KVC Hero Awards

Join us to honor our HOPE LIVES Campaign Champions Marc Bennett, Sedgwick County District Attorney; Jill Docking of The Docking Group/RW Baird; and Patrick Goebel of Star Lumber & Supply Co. In our region, more children and adolescents are experiencing suicidal thoughts, depression, anxiety, psychological trauma, substance abuse, and other mental health challenges. Three leaders stepped up to create a solution in Wichita, KS.

This new children’s psychiatric hospital is giving critical help and hope to children in need.
