Child Welfare Practice Model
The Practice Model serves as a blueprint to describe the values underlying our work and partnership with families, providers and communities in the Kansas child welfare system. The mission of the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) is to protect children, promote healthy families and encourage personal responsibility. Prevention and Protection Services (PPS) promotes safe and healthy homes while strengthening children and families.
