Nebraska Families Collaborative (NFC) works with thousands of at-risk children and families each year by providing case management services in Douglas and Sarpy Counties. We are dedicated to helping families be families.
Who We Are:
NFC is contracted by the State of Nebraska to provide case management and service coordination for children and families involved in the child welfare system in Douglas and Sarpy Counties, working with approximately 5,000 children and families each year. We build on child, family and community strengths so that all children and families are safe, healthy and thriving.

What We Do:
The majority of children who come into the child welfare system do so because of neglect, not abuse. Once children and their families are referred to us from the state, we focus on safely keeping children with their families, safely reunifying children with their families, or finding new adoptive families for children when the first two options aren't possible. We focus on Family Finding efforts to help identify and locate relatives who could provide emotional support, care, and possible long-term permanency for children in foster care. We also provide Aftercare services to individuals and families for one year following their case closing to ensure they continue living safe and healthy lives.

How You Can Help:
With your help, we can give these children and families in need the tools, support and hope to be successful. Your donation - big or small, will have a very real impact on local children, youth and families who need it most.
