Family Reunification

All children deserve safe, loving homes, but when caregivers cannot fully meet a child’s safety needs it becomes necessary to temporarily remove them from their home. When this occurs, our goal is to help caregivers and children reunify by enhancing protective factors and reducing risk factors that led to removal from the home.

With our skills-based interventions and Safe & Connected™ model, we leverage/enhance strengths and mitigate risk. We work closely with children and caregivers to ensure families have skills needed to manage risk and promote well-being. We meet at times convenient to families and adjust intensity to meet each family’s needs.

Throughout reunification, we coordinate and collaborate with everyone involved to ensure the best outcome possible for each child. We are available 24/7/365 to support reunification. We help prepare for a child’s return home, and are available post reunification. We continue providing support to help maintain safety as families readjust.

Population(s) Served

During FY2020-21 6,792 children were in Nebraska’s foster care system. 5,000 children are in Nebraska’s foster care system. They have experienced abuse, neglect, or other family issues and have been removed from their homes by the courts for their safety. Relatives, non-related kin, and foster families provide care and support while these youth are in out-of-home care. Foster care is a safe place that gives children and birth families opportunity to resolve problems and learn healthy skills. Many birth families need help to learn effective parenting skills, overcome substance use, learn healthy ways to cope with trauma they themselves have experienced.

One of KVC’s core services is recruiting, training, licensing, and supporting foster families to care for youth ages birth to 18. KVC staff provide 24/7/365 support, advice and crisis intervention to foster parents who open their homes to youth in need. In 2021, 626 children and teens were cared for by KVC foster families.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We all need connection. That’s why we exist and why we’ve been serving children and families for decades. KVC Nebraska provides services and support that target problems families face. We help people experiencing mental health distress with caring treatment so they can embrace their worth, build resilience and thrive. We provide 24/7/365 support to children who have experienced abuse and neglect, and partner with caring relatives and foster families so they can heal from unimaginable trauma. We work to find children forever families through adoption.

KVC Nebraska is a private, nonprofit child welfare organization that positively impacts the lives of thousands of children and families by providing a diverse array of services including behavioral healthcare, in-home family support, family preservation and unification, substance use treatment, foster care services, outpatient therapy for children and families, educational support, substance use evaluation services, and provide care for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities in KVC extended family homes. KVC Nebraska is committed to strengthening and supporting the well-being and vitality of Nebraska’s children, families and communities through our high-quality, impactful services designed to empower clients by building on their unique strengths.

Improving the health and wellbeing of youth occupies the very core of our mission to meet mental health, educational, and intensive behavioral and emotional support needs of high-risk youth and families. Youth coming into our care face multiple adverse childhood experiences including abuse, neglect, homelessness and exposure to violence that deepen the potential for difficult life outcomes.

KVC Nebraska has many goals. Our primary goal is to enrich and enhance the quality of life children, adolescents, families and individuals in our communities. The welfare of a child cannot wait, and it is our ultimate goal to keep children and families safely together.

Another goal we embody is to empower youth in crisis who have experienced extreme trauma to become more resilient, confident and contributing members of society. This ultimate goal defines the legacy of our success and lasting, meaningful change for youth, their families and communities. To help youth and families reach for their goals, KVC Nebraska provides evidence-based practices in a trauma-informed environment.

When a child has suffered abuse or neglect, or a family is facing a mental health challenge, KVC Nebraska is there with the support needed to move through difficult times. KVC family preservation, foster care, substance use disorder treatment, and behavioral We are committed to enriching and enhancing the lives of Nebraska children and families.

Our vision is to provide leadership in behavioral healthcare, social services, and professional education through the provision of service delivery models with proven quality and fiscal accountability.

KVC Nebraska strategies to meet goals and objectives while ensuring the quality of our care includes a multi-layered approach to person-centered health and wellness. One of our strategies is the joining together of two areas of focus that are often treated as separate. This approach unlocks the potential of individuals and communities to experience greater health and wellness.

The first area of focus in our approach is leading the way in integrated healthcare. With KVC’s expertise in behavioral health, we help people experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, feelings of violence, substance abuse and addiction, behavioral and psychiatric disorders, and the effects of childhood traumatic stress. Our services include in-home therapy and skill-building, education and support, and substance abuse/addiction support. The latest neuroscience tells us that early childhood brain development and the trauma they experienced as children affects an individual’s mental health and physical health into adulthood and throughout their lives. Our solutions work on addressing the whole person first then expand to also include the individual’s environment and community.

The second area of focus in our approach is child welfare/social services. We help ensure that children are safe and that families have the support they need to successfully care for their children. Services include in-home support to keep families safely together (family preservation), family reunification, and foster family care. KVC looks beyond physical health to understand root causes related to childhood adversity and relationships. Families have needs all along the continuum of care. Whether their need is for a low level of intervention (e.g., prevention, education), or their need is acute/complex, needing intervention and/or hospitalization, KVC is ready to help. By improving care and innovating where different fields intersect, we make a lasting impact in the lives of children and families.

Keeping families and children together is accomplished by providing comprehensive and compassionate medical and behavioral healthcare, social services and education to our clients. Our services are in-home, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and driven by a focus on the safety, permanency, and wellbeing of the child and family. Our work with the children and families of Nebraska 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 Nebraska is uniquely positioned to accomplish our mission for children in our care and their families. We work diligently to meet the needs of children and secure assistance of service providers to ensure service integration. To avoid duplication of service, we work closely with the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, CAFCON, the Nebraska Association of Homes and Services for Children, the Nebraska Association of Service Providers, the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands, and many other organizations to develop community-based services for the betterment of children, families and individuals with disabilities. We are committed to enriching and enhancing the lives of Nebraska children and families.

KVC has a rich history of service provision in Nebraska and our work with the children and families 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.
