A recent statewide needs assessment showed families often have difficulty finding and accessing services when they actually need them. Families reported feeling like they must “connect the dots” themselves. KCSL’s 1-800-CHILDREN aims to address the need for better collaboration among providers with centralized, 24/7 support and resource services for families.
