Thousands of children and youth have entered the Nebraska foster care system because they cannot live safely in their birth parents home. Oftentimes, these children and youth enter care without any of their personal items. "Kits for Kids" provides a bag for these children filled with items of comfort such as a blanket or stuffed toy, personal hygiene items, crayons and coloring books, and small gift certificates to purchase socks, pajamas, or clothing.
Kits for Kids can be brought to a support group or in-service training for pick-up.
Please reach out to your local Resource Family Consultant to request a kit! Our RFCs are located on the staff page here
Our staff includes Resource Family Consultants who specialize in one-on-one relationships, which provide foster parents with emotional encouragement, skill reinforcement, and parenting strategies unique to providing out-of-home care.
The Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association (NFAPA) offers scholarships to adoptive, foster, guardianship or kinship youth who wish to further their education beyond high school or GED.
There is an ongoing need in Nebraska for families willing to share their hearts and their homes with children who require temporary foster care. There is also a need for “forever” families for our waiting children, especially teens, who are available for adoption.
