As the largest child placing agency in Nebraska, KVC is committed to raising the bar in child welfare as well as providing support and resources to more individuals and families in need in Nebraska. Over the last year, we have expanded our Extended Family Home program serving individuals with disabilities and launched Youth Peer Support Services to help youth who are experiencing mental health challenges. Take a look at how many individuals and families in Nebraska we were able to impact this past fiscal year:
The Heart of KVC
The Joint Commission awarded KVC accreditation in the state of Nebraska for meeting the standards of excellence associated with providing behavioral healthcare services, completing KVC system-wide accreditation. This is a testimony to the safe, effective, high-quality care KVC provides to children and families across the state.
“KVC has made significant efforts to expand the number of licensed foster homes in the Southeast Service Area (SESA) to provide additional options for older youth, sibling groups and youth with multiple needs. We appreciate our partnership with KVC to serve children, youth and families in the SESA.” | Lindy Bryceson, Southeast Service Area Administrator, Nebraska DHHS – Children and Family Services
