About Nebraska Families Collaborative


Every family will encounter challenges in life. We partner with families and our community so that children and families can thrive together. Whether a family is struggling with behavioral issues, facing foster care or exploring adoption, we deliver these services to families with dignity and respect.

Nebraska Families Collaborative (NFC) is a private, nonprofit partnership composed of five Nebraska-based organizations with more than 400 combined years of experience caring for children and families.

We are contracted by the State of Nebraska to provide child welfare support to families in Douglas and Sarpy counties. After children enter the state welfare system, we engage with children and families to develop life plans that will:

  • Build on child, family and community strengths so that all children and families are safe, healthy, and thriving.
  • Foster communities with strong families in which children are safe and thriving.
  • Support families’ voice and choice.
  • Allow for dignity in all aspects of families’ lives.
