Children entering the Kansas foster care system will soon have a new short-term place to stay in Kansas City.
With kids sleeping in their offices several nights a month, KVC Kansas, one of the states two foster care contractors, has been looking to open some sort of crisis center for the past year.
KVC Kansas kept 28 kids in its offices overnight in March, the most recent month for which data was available. The contractor says no children have had to sleep in its offices since May 18.
