People Matter
 

Thank You to Generous Donors for a Successful RFC 2017

2017 RFC KVC Nebraska - Successful RFC 2017

Thank you for supporting children and families

Close to 120 foster families and over 200 children spent March 31 and April 1 together in Lincoln, Nebraska for two days filled with entertainment, fellowship, training and a complimentary hotel room at the 2017 Resource Family Conference held at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel. The formal educational component of the conference began on the second day, when nationally-known speaker, Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, addressed current issues facing the foster care system. While parents participated in numerous presentations and workshops, children enjoyed fun activities and had the opportunity to meet and interact with other children from similar homes and backgrounds. For some of the children KVC serves, this is the only time in their lives they experience this kind of fun and their gratitude is indescribable! KVC Nebraska wants to take this opportunity to send a very big THANK YOU to the following sponsors, vendors, community partners, speakers, staff & volunteers. This conference 100% could not have been possible without all of you!

About KVC Nebraska

KVC Nebraska is a child welfare and behavioral healthcare organization that provides foster care and intensive in-home services. Its mission is to enrich and enhance the lives of Nebraska families.

As the largest child placing agency in the state, KVC recruits, trains, licenses and supports foster families, providing care for nearly 1,500 children and adolescents each year. KVC staff provide ongoing support to families including 24/7 crisis support, continuing education programs, mentoring coordination, community support groups, and educational programs and publications. KVC raises funds 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 provides intensive in-home services to families in the Eastern, Southeastern, Northern and Central parts of Nebraska. Therapists and skill-builders work in tandem to ensure families remain safe and intact whenever possible. With the use of evidence-based practices like Trauma Systems Therapy (TST), KVC provides specialized interventions to enhance the safety, functioning and self-sufficiency of all families served.
