Strengthening the Kansas Child Welfare System
KVC Kansas is dedicated to strengthening children and families. We’re one of the lead nonprofits providing preventative and foster care services on behalf of the Kansas Department for Children and Families.
Our priorities are to ensure safety; provide high-quality, effective services; and in order to accomplish those, support our amazing team of social workers, therapists, family support workers and other professionals.
Earlier this year, we shared an article called “Too Many Children in Foster Care: KVC Kansas Shares Challenges and Solutions.” This article contains an infographic that explains major changes that have happened over the last five years, and how we can work to address several challenges.
