Built in 2004, the Olathe KVC (Kids Value Connections) Behavioral Healthcare facility is a not-for-profit organization focused on the enrichment and enhancement of the lives of children and families. During the construction of the new building, a portion of the space was designed to house the Ball Event Center. When you host an event at Ball Event Center, you are supporting KVC.

A Few State Highlights:
KVC offers a wide variety of medical, behavioral and social services to thousands of children and families across Kansas each year – from their psychiatric hospital and residential facilities for children, to outpatient services with on-staff psychologists, psychiatrists and pediatricians; from recruitment and support for hundreds of foster homes, to finding loving adoptive families for awaiting children.
The most important service KVC offers is the creation of hope and a path to reach it. Every individual, business and community partner that hosts an event at the Ball Event Center is helping pave that path, a path KVC could not build without this support.
KVC thanks those who have chosen the Ball Event Center as their venue and have helped lift the lives of the children and families they embrace.
