Newborn Care

Planning for the future takes time. In the case that pregnant women or parents do not have a finalized plan by the time their child arrives, NCHS offers Temporary Newborn Care for their child while they make arrangements. These newborn care homes are situated across the state. If you are interested in becoming a Temporary Newborn Care provider, please reach out to us today.

Childcare for Families
Forever Support Group

Support groups currently meet monthly in Omaha, Lincoln and Grand Island. These groups give adoptive parents and guardians a chance to connect and learn from each other. Childcare providers help make sure parents have time to connect!


Take “hands-on” volunteerism to a new level. We need passionate gardeners to help us with planting and landscaping at a variety of service sites in Omaha or Lincoln.

School Supply Drive

Sign up to take part in our July school supply drive! Each year, we work with our communities to collect supplies and materials for educators and students to use in the coming school year. Get a jump-start this year by gathering your neighbors, friends, and colleagues, and sign up to help our fundraising efforts.

Annual Gift Card Drive

NCHS works hard to support and give back to the members of our community seeking help. Each year, we host a gift card drive so that we can give parents and caregivers the gift of dignity by allowing them to choose the items their children need most. See how you can help make an impact in a family’s life by donating today.
