Nebraska Families Collaborative (NFC) provides case management and service coordination for approximately 3,000 children and 1,500 families involved in the child welfare and juvenile justice system for Douglas and Sarpy Counties each year.
Our mission is "to build on child, family and community strengths so that every child is safe, healthy and in a forever family." We accomplish this by providing a complete continuum of non-treatment, non-Medicaid funded services and placement resources, including foster care, kinship care, adoption and permanency placements, transition and independent living services for older youth, Aftercare, and family preservation.
NFC was founded in 2009 as a collaboration of five partners, including Father Flanagan’s Boys Home (Boys Town), Child Saving Institute, Heartland Family Service, Nebraska Family Support Network, and OMNI Behavioral Health. Together, their combined 400 years of experience working with children and families provides NFC with a vast array of resources from which to draw in order to address the safety, permanency and well-being outcomes of every child we support.
