KVC West Virginia is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening families and preventing child abuse and neglect. Our team of caring experts delivers a range of essential services, including in-home family support, foster care, adoption, in-home mental health therapy, and youth educational support – all to fulfill our mission of enriching and enhancing the lives of children and families.
KVC strengthens families using wraparound services so children can remain with their own families and in their own communities. We also provide foster care, reunification support, adoption, substance use treatment, in-home family services, educational support, and child, family and adult therapy.
KVC West Virginia continues to make a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of West Virginia children and families.

Join Our Holiday Heroes Program
Start a new tradition and make this holiday season one to remember! KVC serves hundreds of youth in foster care and they’re each full of unique dreams this holiday season. With your help, we can make their dreams a reality.
KVC West Virginia has collected and provided gifts to children in foster care for over 10 years. Because of our incredible Holiday Heroes, we were able to provide gifts for nearly 200 families and 1,000 children in foster care last year.
Children who find themselves in foster care are victims of abuse, neglect or other family challenges. While our foster families provide so much love and care to the children and teens they serve, as well as a safe place to live, it can be difficult to provide “extra” items like presents during the holidays. Becoming a Holiday Hero is a rewarding way for you to show these kids how special they are!
Anyone can be a Holiday Hero – individuals, families, churches, community organizations, or businesses. Simply choose how you’d like to donate from the options below and donate new, unwrapped gifts to youth in foster care by December 9. Find a drop off location close to you here.
