We're here for Kansans

The Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund is here for you, virtually connected and working remotely to support you. 

In these uncertain times we all have questions.

We want to help you navigate these times with answers and information to help protect and strengthen families.

Current efforts to control this outbreak mean that many of us are together more as families, with new and ever-changing needs. We also know that many child care providers are facing tough choices about continuing services, maintaining safety, and operating differently. Scroll down for information and links useful for both families and providers.

We hope to offer comfort and guidance as we all adjust to the special challenges of this major disruption and change in our routines.

Together, we’ve got this.

For Families

Support in times of need

Everyone needs help sometimes–in these times especially. And it’s ok to ask.

These resources are meant to help families know where to turn for help with food, shelter, care, and other basic needs.

Parenting when life is tough

These resources offer guidance for nurturing and interacting with your children while being responsive to their questions and sensitive to their heightened emotional needs.

Taking care of yourself

Many of us are adjusting to new routines and new realities. We are becoming work-from-home employees, part-time home school teachers, and full-time caregivers. It’s easy to let self-care slide, but now it’s a public service to make sure we stay healthy and able to take care of our kids and each other.
