23+ years of continued services to the families of Nebraska.
We offer a wide range of services to the families of the State of Nebraska. Anywhere from family support services, in home safety services, foster care support and clinical family services.
Family support, parenting time / supervised visitation, in-home safety, and substance abuse screening services are provided to enhance and strengthen families and to assist them to function as independently as possible. Providing education, through a coaching model, services are family-centered, community based and culturally competent. The primary focus for Family Support Services is the safety and well-being of the children. Family Support Services address goals that are developed to strengthen the needs of families while protecting Nebraska's youth.
Foster Care Services provides agency-supported, relative and kinship homes which are designed as an out-of-home placement for a wide variety of youth. Placements are made by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and the Office of Probation. The foster care program has the capacity to care for individuals including victims of abuse, neglect, severe emotional and behavioral disorders, as well as those involved in the juvenile justice system. The combination of family-based care with specialized treatment interventions create a loving environment that supports the strengths and needs of the youth in care.
Provides in-home family-focused, strength-based crisis intervention services designed to maintain children safely in their homes and to prevent the unnecessary separation of families.
Tracking services provides community based one on one support through mentoring and role modeling to youth who are at high risk in specific areas. The Tracker will assist the youth in development of skills to support risk reduction by increasing awareness in areas of basic living skills, education, employment, relationship building and pro social activities. We also use electronic monitoring to increase effectiveness in supervising youth who are required to abide by conditions of the court and/or have behaviors which put themselves or their community at risk. This service also allows for supervision for youth who need their time accounted for.
Provides intensive therapeutic and skill building interventions to families whose children have been removed and placed out of the family home for an extensive amount of time. Intensive Family Reunification improves parenting capacity as well as children's well-being, and families are safely reunified because of their change in behavior.
