Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) announced in January that KVC was awarded the contracts for Reintegration/Foster Care/Adoption Services and Family Preservation Services for the Kansas City and East Regions. With these awards, KVC will continue to serve all existing communities and expand its service reach even further. This represents a 30-county area of eastern Kansas, spanning from Nebraska to Oklahoma, and includes approximately 50 percent of all children served in Kansas child welfare.

“We are excited about the opportunity to visit these communities and share the KVC story,” President of KVC Behavioral HealthCare, Inc. Chad Anderson said. “We are eager to meet those interested in career opportunities with KVC, and we look forward to serving the children and families in these regions.”
