Feeling Heard — and Helping Others
“KVC is such a great place to work. I feel heard when I have anything I need to bring to my boss. You can tell this company truly appreciates their employees. Your paid time off grows the longer you have been there, and is not capped at two weeks. They have tuition reimbursement, great healthcare choices and yearly raises. That is just a small bit of what KVC does for their employees. On top of all that you get to go to sleep at night knowing you helped better a child’s life! Big or small, all the positions are so meaningful and you really feel like you are helping your community.” – KVC Missouri employee
