Apr 14, 2024

Esther and her team now offer a one-of-a-kind program targeted at minority entrepreneurs who often struggle to obtain business loans for startups. The program allows savvy entrepreneurs passionate about behavioral health the opportunity to establish their group home within the Best Care Network, gain capital, and learn the trade to eventually open their own homes.

Esther Kparyea, Co-Owner of Effective Fulfillment with husband, and Partner at Best Care Consulting, did not know she would be responsible for so many people's financial stability and security. Growing up in a poverty-stricken neighborhood in Kansas City, MO. she often felt the lack of security as she lived in the homes of family members and sometimes even with friends of family. After making a decision at age 8 to change her family tree she graduated with a Master of Social Work at age 22 and would begin working in psychiatric hospitals and on crisis teams. Esther realized her passion was rooted in solution-based outcomes therefore by the time a person was in crisis it appeared too late. Due to her big picture thinking she very quickly advanced in her career and was given the opportunity to be the Assistant Residential and Inpatient Administrator of a small town clinic where she would learn the inner workings of Adult Behavioral Residential Facilities. Esther eventually teamed up with Best Care Behavioral Homes first as their Chief Clinical Officer. After doubling their home inventory within one a year, and helping the company generate millions, they decided to expand, and the Affiliate program was born.

Esther and her team now offer a one-of-a-kind program targeted at minority entrepreneurs who often struggle to obtain business loans for startups. The program allows savvy entrepreneurs passionate about behavioral health the opportunity to establish their business within the Best Care Network in order to gain capital, while learning the trade to eventually open their own homes. During the year her husband was deployed Esther grew her mental health business and expanded to co-own of Effective Homes, the part of her business where she owns and operates adult behavioral homes for individuals diagnosed with serious mental illness. The entire initiative has provided over seventy jobs to rural and minority communities which were not affected by the recent pandemic of 2020. Currently, the affiliate program has five houses with plans to expand to 20 within three years. Esther has not only assisted entrepreneurs indirectly, but also has taken everything she learned in Behavioral Health and given back through her business Effective Fulfillment Clinical Services where she assists group homes with compliance and training in order and assists new graduates with obtaining skills and knowledge to navigate through the Behavioral Health System by providing Clinical Supervision at reduced rates.
