Founded in 1980, Christian Heritage started out to serve at-risk children in the foster care system. We continue that work today. On any given day Christian Heritage foster families care for around 200 children across the state. It is bittersweet for us. We would rather that foster care did not have to exist but because abuse and neglect take place, we consider it a blessing to be able to help give these kids a healthy, safe and loving environment to live in whether temporary or permanent.

Fatherlessness is common denominator for many of these kids. That is why we launched a fatherhood initiative that resulted in a program called "Destination...Dad". We work with fathers who are incarcerated to give them skills and tools to be better fathers and then help to reconnect them with their children. Did you know that a child who has an incarcerated parent is 6 time more likely to be incarcerated in their lifetime?

We realize that Foster Care is necessary in this day and age but a couple of years ago Christian Heritage became the lead implementing agency in Nebraska for "Safe Families For Children." This is a movement of the church and is a way to deflect children from enter the state's care. This program pairs families in crisis to families that are willing to open their homes to children in need.
