For over 120 years, the Kansas Children's Service League has been giving our best to Kansas kids. Our early work centered on finding homes for abandoned, abused, neglected or orphaned children. It stemmed from a then-radical belief that children grew up best in family homes, not in orphanages or homes for wayward children. Today we continue our efforts in education and prevention while preserving our mission, to protect and promote the well-being of children.
KCSL is a statewide, COA accredited, not-for-profit agency that works to prevent child abuse, strengthen families and empower parents.
What is the Healthy Families program?
Healthy Families America (HFA) is a voluntary home-visiting program for parents who are expecting or have just had a new baby and are facing multiple stressors in their lives. The Kansas Children’s Service League (KCSL) currently sponsors Healthy Families programs in eight Kansas counties including Cherokee, Johnson, Wyandotte, Lyon, Montgomery, Reno, Shawnee and Sedgwick County. KCSL is accredited by HFA and is the Kansas state chapter for Prevent Child Abuse America.
Goals of KCSL Healthy Families
Families participating in the program meet regularly with a specially trained home visitor who teaches them about child health and development, helps them access immunizations and health care services for the child, assists parents with goal setting, links them with community services, and provides support in coping with the stresses and challenges of parenting. Services are initiated prenatally or soon after birth and can last until the child is 3 to 5 years old.
No one knows kids better than the Kansas Children’s Service League. For more than 100 years, we’ve provided a continuum of programs and services, advocated for children, and collaborated with public and private agencies to impact the lives of more than 40,000 children and families each year. KCSL is dedicated to providing services and advocacy efforts that focus on keeping children safe, families strong, and communities involved.
