Family First Services

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Child and Family Services is committed to working with families to ensure their children can remain in their home whenever possible! We want to work with parents to identify services and strategies to address struggles they may be having within their family and prevent their children from entering the Foster Care system! Keeping families together whenever it is safe to do so is what is best for children, parents, and communities! We also know that no one knows your family better than YOU! We want to give you the information and tools to make the best decisions for your family and give you as much power and voice when working with DHHS-CFS as possible! Click on the links below to learn about different services offered through a Foster Care Prevention Plan that can provide support and resources and help your family develop new skills to keep your children safe and your family together! Talk with your Child and Family Services about a referral through DHHS for these services!
