KCSDV’s Empowered Families Kansas (EFK) project is building evidence and resiliency based approaches to improving outcomes for children, youth, and non-abusing parents experiencing domestic violence. The project consists of three components. The first component of the Empowered Families Kansas project focuses on establishing new, residential and non-residential specialized advocacy mentorship services available to youth (ages 8-18) exposed to domestic violence, and their non-abusing parents or caregivers, that are developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate, as well as evidence- and trauma-informed. The second component of the project focuses on enhancing and expanding the statewide capacity of all 24 Kansas domestic violence advocacy programs to provide advocacy services to children and youth exposed to domestic violence and their non-abusing parents. Finally, the third component of the project focuses on improving the response by child protective services and child welfare professionals statewide to the needs of children and non-abusing parents when addressing the co-occurrence of domestic violence and child welfare-related issues. The EFK project team will share challenges and successes from the first two years of the project within the needs assessment process and project implementation. The team will also share the goals for the next two years of the project.
