Kansas Children’s Service League’s focus shifts from adoption to keeping families together

The Kansas Children’s Service League, which celebrates its 120th anniversary this year, has been responsible for thousands of adoptions statewide since its founding in 1893. But the definition of a "typical" American family has changed since then, and so have the services KCSL provides. Its staff members no longer focus on facilitating adoptions but on preventing child abuse in the families where kids are most at risk.
