Our Mission

Advocating for Quality Long-Term Care

Our Vision

All older Kansans receive good quality long-term health care in the setting of their choice


Kansans for Improvement of Nursing Homes (KINH) was launched in 1975 by Petey Cerf along with other citizens concerned about the poor state of care in nursing homes. They had a profound impact on the quality of care by touring nursing homes and presenting their findings to Kansas legislators, resulting in significant new public policies.

In the mid-90’s our name changed to Kansas Advocates for Better Care (KABC), to reflect our commitment to quality in all long-term care settings – nursing homes, assisted living and at home.

Without your generosity and commitment, KABC would be unable to continue the path that Petey Cerf set, striving for the best quality care for Kansas residents.
