Caring for Nebraska’s most vulnerable populations
KVC Nebraska is a behavioral health organization that provides child welfare, juvenile justice and developmental disability services. These services include Foster Care, Intensive Family Preservation, Family Support Services and Extended Family Home services for individuals with Developmental and/or Intellectual Disabilities.
As the largest child-placing agency in the state of Nebraska, KVC recruits, trains, licenses and supports foster families, providing care for children and adolescents. KVC raises fund privately to underwrite an annual Resource Family Conference where approximately 600 resource parents, children and volunteers come together to learn from and be inspired by national speakers and experts, network with each other, and enjoy family activities.
KVC strives to find placement and support for those most chronic and difficult cases including children and individuals who have been identified as having a dual diagnosis, and/or children and adults who have experienced institutionalization, trauma and/or multiple and frequent moves.
KVC staff provide ongoing support to families, foster youth and families, and individuals placed in services including 24/7 crisis support, continuing education programs, mentoring coordination, community support groups, one-on-one training, and educational programs and publications.
