Governor Laura Kelly announced on June 17, to recognize Kansans’ continuous efforts to strengthen families and communities, she has proclaimed June as Reunification Month in Kansas.
“All Kansas kids deserve a permanent, loving home,” said Governor Kelly. “This Reunification Month, I ask Kansans to join me in thanking our welfare agencies, courts, schools, businesses, individuals, and all those who put in the work to reunite the children in our foster care systems with their families.”
The proclamation states reunification with their family is the preferred outcome for children placed in foster care.
From July 2020 to April 2021, 1,516 children were successfully reunified with their families in Kansas.
