Caring for Children and Families in Crisis

KVC Missouri is a nonprofit that strengthens families, prevents child abuse and neglect, and helps people achieve mental health wellness. Its flagship location, KVC Niles in Kansas City, has a strong 140-year legacy as it was founded when Samuel Eason began caring for homeless children in 1883. The organization became Niles Home for Children and then joined KVC Health Systems in 2017. KVC Missouri’s services include family strengthening prevention, day treatment (K-12 school), children’s mental health services ranging from intensive outpatient to residential treatment, treatment foster care, and foster parent training
