KCSDV’s Child Welfare Project

In 2016, KCSDV was one of 12 sites nationally to be awarded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Specialized Services for Abused Parents and Their Children Grant. The grant is awarded to new projects for innovative work.

KCSDV’s Empowered Families Kansas project focuses on three strategies to build evidence-based practices that improve outcomes for children and youth exposed to domestic violence and their non-abusing parents or caregivers. One of these strategies is increasing child welfare.

See KCSDV’s newly published report on child welfare.

KCSDV’s Empowered Families Kansas Project is a 4-year demonstration project, meaning after it is complete, it can be used as an innovative model for others.
