This month we are giving back to KVC Kansas. KVC Kansas is responsible for the care of all children served by the Kansas Department for Children and Families in Kansas City. KVC supports foster families and children with support in many areas, including crisis support, continuing education programs, mentoring coordination, support groups, and educational forums.
The mission of KVC: “KVC enriches and enhances the lives of children and families by providing medical and behavioral health care, social services, and education.”
As a part of their support of foster children, KVC sponsors an “Adopt an Angel” program to help ensure the children of KVC have a happy holiday season. This program allows individuals and/or businesses to purchase items from a child’s wish/need list (angels). The items are gathered in a giant red bag and presented to the foster parents before the holidays. For more information on how to get involved in the program, check it out here.
