Merry (Early) Christmas! Hope you enjoy the pictures from the event. Vic and Vikky of Lavender Life Farms were magnificent hosts.
In 2022 there were 10,500 kids served in Michigan's foster care service, and only 5000 licensed foster homes. Roughly 50% of the children who enter foster care are able to go back to their biological families, while the other half need adoptive placements. Local adoptive and foster parents need support as they struggle to meet the complex needs created by the grief, loss, and trauma experienced by the children in their care. Lack of support leads to family distress and disrupted placements, ultimately hurting both families and children. Last month, VK Civil partnered with Replanted Grand Rapids to fill the support gap and [...]

If you are looking for a great environment where the team enjoys working and playing together, give us a call and let’s start a conversation! [...]
“I’m not stopping!!!” Unsuspecting riders were in for a huge scare if they hadn’t seen others ride the zipline before them at the VK Civil Family Picnic.

For those not a fan of ziplines, the magic show and ice cream truck were just the thing for kids and adults alike. The food, yard games, great conversations and a fun evening were had by all. Looking for a great environment where [...]
