Our services are in-home, strengths-based, and driven by a focus on the safety, permanency, and wellbeing of the child and family. Each year, KVC Kentucky serves more than 12,000 children and families in eight regions of the state. (Learn what KVC stands for.)
KVC has a rich 15-year history of service provision in Kentucky and our work with the children and families of Kentucky is enhanced by continuous quality improvement. We value dignity, respect, honesty and integrity. We deliver our innovative and effective services in a culturally-sensitive manner, respectful of a child and family’s strengths and values.
KVC Kentucky is accredited by The Joint Commission, and a proud member of the Kentucky chapter of the Children’s Alliance.
The organization is a subsidiary of KVC Health Systems which directly touches the lives of nearly 60,000 children each day in five states and Washington, D.C. Due to KVC’s leadership in the use of evidence-based practices to achieve better outcomes and advance child welfare, the Annie E. Casey Foundation has endorsed KVC as a national best-practice organization.
