Background Statement
KVC’s history of providing children and family services began in 1970. From 1980-2015, Wayne Sims, past President and CEO built KVC from a single home serving at-risk children in Kansas City, Kansas to a model child welfare and behavioral healthcare continuum national organization serving over 60,000 children and families in Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska and West Virginia.

In 2016 Jason Hooper was named President and CEO. He champions a culture that is trauma-informed, technology-based, team-oriented and unafraid to lean forward, stating “KVC has the unique opportunity to lead national trends in areas such as integration of medical and behavioral healthcare, unfolding lessons of brain science, importance of evidence-based practices, and need to innovate constantly.”

Over the years, lessons about effective treatment have emerged and evolved. KVC’s policy of “no reject-no eject” means no child or family is turned away due to inability to pay or complexity of need. Often children with acute needs are referred outside of their community to receive treatment, many out of state. KVC has helped change this. In late 2009, SRS chose KVC to replicate its psychiatric inpatient services for youth at the Wyandotte County Prairie Ridge campus, into western Kansas. KVC Wheatland Psychiatric Hospital in Hays, Kansas opened in April, 2010 and is the only children’s inpatient provider in western Kansas.

KVC continues to focus on expanding depth of leadership and staff. The Board of Directors modified the legal structure in 2008 to promote continued growth with quality and fiscal accountability, while effectively managing risk. KVC Health Systems, Inc. provides administrative support to subsidiaries. The Board of Directors reviews and approves all budgets and financial statements for these operations: KVC Hospitals, Inc., KVC Behavioral HealthCare, Inc., KVC Behavioral HealthCare Kentucky, Inc., KVC Behavioral HealthCare Nebraska, Inc., KVC Behavioral HealthCare West Virginia, Inc., and KVC Niles in Kansas City, Missouri. Together, all affiliated organizations work together under a common vision and mission to enrich and enhance the lives of children and families. KVC has over 1,500 team members and 200 volunteers at 35 locations in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Kentucky and West Virginia and provides consultation and training across the U.S. and around the world through its KVC Institute. KVC’s pride in its past is equal to its commitment to the future.
Impact Statement Headquartered in the greater Kansas City area, KVC enriches and enhances the lives of more than 60,000 children and families each year by providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services, and education. Our diverse continuum of services includes foster care, adoption, in-home family therapy, behavioral/mental healthcare, residential treatment, substance abuse treatment and psychiatric hospitals across five states. KVC trains and supports foster families that care for children each year in Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska and West Virginia and provides consulting to agencies on foster-care-related topics. The Annie E. Casey Foundation has endorsed KVC as a national best practice organization.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
KVC has achieved positive outcomes for over 47 years thanks to guiding values such as “Children grow best in families” and “Excellence is not an act; it’s a habit.” Achievements in 2016 included keeping 6,164 families safely together without disruption to foster care; providing 5,550 families with high-quality, in-home family preservation services; 6,319 children cared for by family, kinship, foster families; 21,674 children and adults received in-home services; matched 442 children with adoptive families (3,385 since 2005); treated 3,492 youth and adults at KVC Hospitals, 97% showing improvement in trauma-related symptoms within the first 7 days of treatment; safely reducing the average length of stay for children in residential treatment to about 80 days, as compared to 9-12 months in other states; and recognition as a national leader and trainer in integrating trauma-informed care into child welfare and related systems.

  1. Continue being a leader in delivering focused, trauma-informed services. 
  2. Increase recruitment of adoptive and foster families for at-risk teens.

Short-Term Success

More than 3,400 youth and adults were treated at KVC Psychiatric Hospitals in 2016. That is nearly a 15% increase over the previous year. Short term achievements include that KVC Psychiatric Hospital services include: 

  • Increasing the urgency to build youths’ skillsets and identify structured plans to help them transition back into their homes and communities.
  • This urgency is healthy for youth, families, communities and residential providers.
  • Youth clearly understand their treatment goals and how they can prepare to return to their communities.
  • Families and communities remain engaged in learning new skills to prepare for their return.
KVC’s high quality care allows youth to be discharged to less restrictive settings where on-going support reflects the expertise and effectiveness of our services.
Long-Term Success

Children and teens requiring admission at KVC Hospitals receive the highest level of quality services from experienced, compassionate physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers, and staff. All KVC staff coming into contact with youth in crisis and their families emulates KVC's emphasis on urgency and excellence in improving the overall health of patients. Services are family-centered, culturally, socially and spiritually competent.

KVC’s trauma-informed approach allows us to understand symptoms in the context of an individual’s world and take steps toward a safe and healthy future. Timely, empirically validated treatments and access to behavioral/mental healthcare, therapeutic services and medication management are improved for children, their families, and the community. KVC enriches and enhances quality of life by providing comprehensive and compassionate trauma-focused medical, psychiatric behavioral and mental healthcare, and education. 

Program Success Monitored By

Measuring KVC’s effectiveness from the start, children are assessed upon entering our care and are closely monitored throughout their time with the agency. Case managers assess family issues leading to removal and develop case plans. Assessments clarify behavioral/medical needs upon admission and every 90 days thereafter. Outcomes measure progress toward goals of safety, priority placement, permanency, and well-being. KVC’s continuum of care helps children and families in crisis move towards positive resolution.

KVC’s Information System (IS) maintains data on placements, length of stay, moves management, and social worker-family contacts. IS tracks each child and daily census data; computing statistics on goals and outcome measurements by county and geographic region. Outcomes are based upon specific measurements in individualized plan goals, and reviewed by staff. Updated daily, extensive outcome reports are generated every month.
Examples of Program Success

KVC was chosen by the state to be the mental health provider for children needing acute or sub-acute psychiatric hospitalization and treatment in the eastern half of Kansas and is the only program offering a Board Certified Child Psychiatrist for follow up care to any child who is discharged from our programs. 

“Sara,” a teenage girl, was receiving treatment at KVC Hospitals. During a routine health discussion, she became upset and emotionally disregulated. Having developed a strong relationship with Sara, Dr. Anh Vinh, Director of Integrated Health Services was able to help Sara to open up about the trauma she had recently endured and work through her emotions as well as the physical symptoms she was experiencing. KVC’s treatment team helped develop a trauma-informed treatment plan and ensure Sara received the right help and support she needed.
Description

The availability of strong, nurturing families to provide safe homes for children removed from their birth families is vital. When the courts remove children due to abuse, neglect or other family challenges, foster families provide a safe, supportive environment during a difficult time. KVC believes in treating each child with utmost urgency, matching them with caregivers they know, and working with foster parents as valued permanency partners. KVC’s “Big Idea” for transforming foster care, Safe and Connected model, and Telehealth program strengthen services to children and families 24/7. KVC continually recruits, trains and supports foster parents to care for children.

KVC has helped finalize 3,385 adoptions since 2005, and celebrates adoptions each year on National Adoption Day. The annual Resource Family Conference and continuing education and support groups assist families take on the challenge of nurturing children experiencing the loss of their family through abuse or neglect.

Short-Term Success

KVC staff strives to provide individualized treatment plans and goals, working with families to promote permanency and advocate healing. KVC works to find safe placement for them in foster homes, with priority given to relatives, and those with kinship relationships. We strive to find homes in their counties of origin and close to their home community.

When a family shows interest in becoming a resource for a child who needs a home, the process from inquiry to pre-service training for families will take not more than 6 weeks. Classes offered: partnership for permanence and safety - Model Approach to Partnerships and Parenting and Deciding Together for those considering adoption. Home studies are completed in a timely manner for identified adoptive resource families.

Long-Term Success

KVC recognizes the importance of maintaining family connections and exploring a family’s natural support system to lead children and families to success. In caring for these children, we believe that KVC’s broad spectrum support system coupled with a positive, pragmatic vision, and committed foster families deliver positive long-ranging impact. KVC has helped Kansas achieve national leadership in child welfare standards set by the federal Children and Family Services Review; outcomes that ensure child safety, permanency and well being.


KVC has hundreds of foster homes in Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska and West Virginia. These homes serve over served about 10,000 children last year. From infant to adult, KVC provides direct, supportive, holistic services; advocating for and enhancing the lives of children and families.

Examples of Program Success

Foster: The Dawson’s provided foster care for 3 sisters; including the girls’ parents in extracurricular activities, parent/teacher conferences and medical appointments; always advocating to ensure the girls were heard and needs met. After living with them awhile, the Dawson’s surprised the sisters by redecorating their bedroom. Seeing this, the oldest girl became emotional and said that she felt really cared for and loved.

Adoption: Jerry and Keira Gross decided to grow their family by adopting Duncan, a 16 year old boy seeking a forever home. “From the beginning of our interaction with KVC, we always knew Duncan was going to be our forever family,” says Jerry. “Bringing Duncan into our family has not only changed us, but it's changed him as well. He’s been given new opportunities, adventures and possibilities. It's amazing what structure, guidance and hope can give to a child that wants to be loved,” said Keira. Duncan is doing well in school with A's and B's in his classes.

Description KVC provides comprehensive services that strengthen our reunification and permanency efforts with children and families. KVC’s permanency services tool-kit of evidence-based approaches tailored to each child’s needs set us apart as a model provider of child welfare services, and the reason KVC is cited as a success story. The service enrichment and family support structure KVC provides are empirically validated interventions that help ensure positive outcomes for children and families. KVC staff utilizes this high level of care to help families solve originating issues that left unaddressed will perpetuate cycles of abuse that require law enforcement and state intervention. In 2016 KVC kept 6,184 families safely together, and provided 21,674 children and adults with in-home services. As the need for mental health services continues to grow, KVC is on the leading edge of finding, developing and providing innovative solutions.

Short-Term Success

Within four hours of children coming into KVC’s care, we find an appropriate placement with preference given to caring relatives, kinship homes, and placement in counties of origin and school area of attendance. Within 24 hours KVC’s treatment team meets to explore options and draft a case management plan designed to address family problems that led to removal from the home.

KVC ensures that children are safely placed then continue with the case management plan and draw in all interested parties to participate (e.g., children, birth parents, foster parents, therapist, other KVC professional staff as needed). KVC’s short-term success is in placing children in safe, caring homes and providing case management, in-home services, therapeutic guidance, behavioral/mental healthcare and a multi-layered support system.
Long-Term Success

KVC is one of the first organizations to secure the contract with the state of Kansas to provide family preservation, reintegration, foster care, and adoption services, and is the only organization that has continued our contract for 23 years. KVC is responsible for the care of all children served by the Kansas Department for Children and Families in the East (28-county) and Metro (2-county) regions in Kansas, roughly 3,500 children are in our care every night.

KVC works to ensure that every child will have a safe, permanent home, whether with their biological family, a relative, or an adoptive home. Using Parent Management Training (PMT), in-home therapy, and case management, KVC draws on research and nearly five decades of experience to adapt treatment interventions that make families and children achieve the goal of reunification in the shortest possible time frame.

Examples of Program Success “Barbara,” a foster mother, specializes in accepting teen boys with difficult backgrounds. She has mothered more than 25 youth in her home over the past 12 years, with great success. The boys rave about "Mom's" excellent cooking, saying she’s a great listener who lets them know they are a family first and foremost. It takes two refrigerators and six gallons of milk weekly to keep this family fed. She keeps them busy, all participate in school, church, three boys sing in the church band. On Thursdays the boys play basketball with the men of the congregation. Barbara says, “A difficult childhood and society’s influence may lurk outside my door, but inside, it’s safe, warm and full of love.”
CEO Comments From Jason Hooper, President and CEO, “KVC’s approach to behavioral healthcare uses the latest neuroscience that tells us brain development occurs long into adulthood and correlates with each individual’s capacity to handle life’s challenges. Other organizations across the nation are taking notice and striving to learn from KVC’s innovative approach. This is a great achievement for our organization and the children and families we serve. On behalf of our management team and our board of directors, I want to thank our staff for their part in working to improve the lives of our clients daily. We are proud of their contributions toward making KVC a national leader in providing mental health, social services and education for children and families.”

KVC’s adaptation of TST to child welfare, through a six-year partnership with its developer, Dr. Glenn Saxe, Chair of the NYU Department of Child Psychiatry and Director of the NYU Child Study Center, has been a ‘game changer’ for KVC. It has led to KVC’s expertise in adapting TST training, including the development of manuals to support training for therapists (inpatient and outpatient), direct care staff, case managers, foster families and community stakeholders. Currently, KVC is partnering with Dr. Saxe, the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Child Trends to complete research on using Trauma Systems Therapy as a mechanism to reduce length of time in out-of-home care, increase placement stability and improve child and family wellbeing for children in the child welfare system.

KVC partners with area universities including Kansas University Medical Center to provide psychiatric rotations on our children's hospital for residents and nursing students. Other partners include District Courts, Unified Government, DCF, KDHE, Community Developmental Disabilities Organization, the Kansas Health Institute, Community Mental Health Centers and the faith community.

CEO Comments Foundational to KVC’s mission is our belief that children grow best in families. We continually work to achieve our mission in purposeful ways that have long-lasting impact. KVC’s commitment to excellence and innovation infuses our 47-year history, guides our strategy into the future, and provides compassionate hope and help to thousands of children and families.

Childhood, while the best part of many people’s lives, can evoke painful memories for many others. Because childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have such a tremendous impact on lifelong health and opportunity, KVC collaborates with other health experts and researchers in identifying and studying adverse child experiences as a top priority that needs to be addressed regarding the many major public health issues in the United States. KVC has been undergoing one such study over the past several years, with the results being made available in 2017.

In partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Child Trends, and TST creator Dr. Glen Saxe of the Child Study Center at New York University, KVC Institute’s five-year initiative Bridging the Way Home, was the largest study ever conducted to implement a research-informed therapeutic model across an organization’s full continuum of care. The Children’s Review Journal will publish two articles on the groundbreaking study in 2017, paving the way for health leaders around the world to benefit from its lessons.
