- About Us
KVC Health Systems is committed to enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families by providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services, and education.
KVC Health Systems makes a positive difference in the lives of over 70,000 people each year. By providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services and education, we are enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families.
Our services include:
Our licensed clinicians help resolve challenges and deliver services right in families’ homes so that children can remain safely in their homes and with their families rather than entering foster care.
In the U.S., over 400,000 children are foster care. KVC recruits, trains and supports relative, non-related kin and foster families to love and support over 7,000 children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or other challenges.
More than 100,000 U.S. children in foster care cannot be safely reunited with their birth families and have no one else to care for them. KVC has helped match more than 5,000 children in foster care with forever families since 2005.
We provide trauma-informed residential psychiatric treatment programs as well as acute hospitalization at our children’s psychiatric hospitals and residential treatment centers. Learn more here on our KVC Hospitals website.
We provide compassionate mental and behavioral treatment to children, teens and adults experiencing a range of mental health and psychiatric disorders, as well as those dealing with the effects of traumatic stress.
We work on behalf of state child welfare agencies to provide case management and direct services to children and families.
Sharing best practices and models of success with other child welfare and behavioral healthcare organizations is part of our mission, both in the U.S. and internationally.
