KVC West Virginia continues to make a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of West Virginia children and families.
Spotlight on Providers
In this section, we profile KVC staff and partners who are making a difference.
Each year, we recognize one family as the KVC Resource Parents of the Year.
How To Become A Foster Parent
Each year, hundreds of local children are removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect or other challenges. These kids and teenagers need the support of a caring foster family.
How To Become An Adoptive Parent
KVC West Virginia helps match children in foster care with loving forever families through adoption. We work exclusively with children that are placed through the Department of Health and Human Resources
As we prepare for the 2019-20 school year, KVC wants to ensure that each child in our care is fully prepared when they return to school in the fall. Over the summer months, we invite you to extend a helping hand to children in your local community by donating new backpacks, pens, pencils, calculators, binders and more to your local KVC office!
By donating a backpack filled with new school supplies, you are giving a child the best possible start to a successful school year!
Here is the list of supplies we are collecting so that each child can have a positive start to their school year:
- One sturdy backpack in a solid color
- 3-ring binders (at least 2.5 inches)
- Boxes of tissues
- Black, blue, or red pens
- Highlighters in various colors
- Crayons – 24 count
- Number 2 pencils
- Glue sticks
- Pocket folders in various colors
- Graph paper
- Wide-rule notebook paper and spiral notebooks
- College-rule notebook paper and spiral notebooks
- Index cards
If you would like to donate supplies, items can be dropped off at the KVC office location nearest you. To find a local office, please visit our locations page.
We know the summer months are a busy time, so if you don’t have time to shop, please consider helping by making an online donation noted for the back-to-school supply drive, and our volunteers will do the shopping for you! Rest assured that all designated donations will go directly towards purchasing school supplies for children and youth in foster care.
