Getting involved allows parents the valuable opportunity to develop critical leadership skills and feel a sense of empowerment. We invite our parents and caregivers to participate in support groups, advisory counsels, board meetings, conference presentations, parent cafes, parent/practitioner partnership trainings, and advocacy activities through our agency.

Dads make a big difference in the lives of their children. That’s why KCSL offers classes, support groups, parent cafes, father-friendly checklists, meetings, and more. We encourage dads throughout the state to get involved and improve their parenting skills.

KCSL offers mental health services for the entire family. We offer infant, child, teen, and family therapy both in-person and via telehealth.
