Planning for the future takes time.

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.

Become a
Foster Parent

The road to becoming a foster parent takes time, patience, and preparation, but you will never face it alone. NCHS works with you to educate yourself and your family on the journey to becoming a foster parent. For information on how to get started, reach out to our team.

Childcare for Foster
Parent Support Group

At this time, we continue to hold meetings virtually so childcare is not needed. We have also moved this meeting to quarterly for the 2022 year, we’ll review this plan again as the year ends.

Gardening

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/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/gift card drive, so that we can help spread some holiday cheer to the families who need it most. See how you can help make an impact in a family’s life by donating today.
