Absolutely!  We have tremendous needs for community support for everything from Christmas gifts for children to everyday items for children first coming into state care.  You can also become involved in fundraising at KVC or make a monetary donation (donation link).  We are also on the lookout for qualified volunteers (link to volunteer page) to assist in organizing our donated items.  Contact us today to help.

No one is perfect.  We look for loving, caring adults who want to make a positive impact in a child’s life.  You can be single or married; a home owner or an apartment dweller.

The need for foster parents never ends.  Each day, children who have been abused or neglected come to KVC.  We have staff on call 24/7 to find a child a safe, loving foster home.
