As of October 1, 2021, families served by Right Turn, a collaborative between Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska and Nebraska Children's Home Society (NCHS), will be served through the NCHS Families Forever program.
Families Forever provides help to families across Nebraska who have adopted or entered into a guardianship relationship with a child. Services are provided to adoptive families – including international, domestic infant, private, step-parent and foster adoptive families.
To learn more or enroll in services, contact FamiliesForever@nchs.org or call 844-463-0009.
If you are interested in providing a Forever Home to a child, please look at the following sites. Note: you will need to be a foster parent.

The Collaboration to AdoptUSKids is a project of The Children’s Bureau, part of the Federal Department of Health and Human Services. It is a national adoptive family recruitment and retention strategy to encourage and enhance adoptive family support organizations and conduct a variety of adoption research projects.
The process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent can be time consuming, averaging four-twelve months to complete all the steps needed to be licensed. This includes submitting an application, background checks, references, training and a home study. It can seem overwhelming and invasive but it is important to know that everyone is ensuring the safety and well-being of the foster child. Please contact NFAPA to get started.
Gift of Adoption Fund
The Nebraska Foster & Adoptive Parent Association received some information on a possible grant to qualified applicants to remove prohibitive financial barriers and make possible the adoptions of some some children both domestically and internationally. NFAPA has no further knowledge on this grant. https://giftofadoption.org/apply-for-a-grant/
