Organizations throughout West Virginia will come together on June 28 at the West Virginia State Museum and Culture Center in Charleston, West Virginia for an evening of fun, food and friendship at the charity event, Home Hope Heroes. The event is hosted by KVC West Virginia, a nonprofit child welfare and behavioral healthcare leader. Proceeds will benefit children and families across the state.
This year, guest speakers include Senator Ed Gaunch and KVC West Virginia President Brent Lemon. Entertainment will be provided by the West Virginia Treble Makers and pianist Barbara Nissman.
KVC West Virginia provides in-home behavioral healthcare, foster family support services and adoption. In 2015, the organization was selected to help children through the state’s “Safe At Home West Virginia” program, an initiative of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources Bureau for Children and Families. Its aim is to maximize the benefits of home and community-based services for children in out-of-home care, in conjunction with providing behavioral and mental health services. The goal is to reduce the use of congregate and out-of-state care.
