A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

With your help, we’re continuing to build strong family connections for children like Tina, Adam, and Rachel who have overcome extreme abuse and neglect.

Their parents were selling and using drugs illegally, and they suffered from mental health issues. The children were not enrolled in school. When the police came to investigate, they discovered that the children were suffering from sexual abuse at the hands of their parents.

The children were immediately placed in foster care, and the youngest, Rachel, went into residential psychiatric treatment for help with extreme anger issues, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other issues.

The children were immediately placed in foster care, and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services enlisted the support of the NCHS Family Finding team to find their extended family members.

Our specialist located aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents who were all eager to reconnect with the children. Likewise, the children were overjoyed to build a relationship with them.

When their newfound family members saw the love and security the children had in their foster home, they agreed that their foster parents should adopt them.

Today, Tina, Adam and Rachel are continuing to build strong family ties, are excelling in school and they are part of their forever family!

Your gifts ensure that families and children continue receiving the support they need.
