"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves." Romans 12:10




From its conception in 2007, Kansas Family Advisory Network continues to incorporate the six guiding principles from the Family Centered Systems of Care into every service KFAN offers. These guiding principles are:


* Youth and Family Involvement

* Individualized Strength-Based Care

* Cultural Competence

* Interagency Collaboration

* Community Based Services

* Accountability


But today we are so much more!
