In August, Brandy Barlett from KVC Kansas joined the Johnson County Women in NAACP (WIN) to present KVC Kansas “Caring for Children and Families in Crisis”. Brandy Barlett discussed fostering and adoption, especially fostering of black children. She provided statistics and resources to educate us and bring awareness to fostering.
