The Nebraska Children’s Home Society (NCHS) is a non-profit charity aiming to help women and teens assess their choices for parenting and adoption. Its primary goal is to find and provide safe and nurturing environments for children.
One of the main causes they support is parents of unplanned children, in the form of confidential pregnancy counseling services and others. On top of that, they also have an adoption center offering support and resources to parents who choose adoption.
NCHS has adopted the Healthy Families America home visiting program. This provides aid to pregnant women aged 19 and younger in Douglas County, and young adults aged 25 and younger residing in the Omaha Metro Area.

A Foster Care Program arranges temporary care for children and teens who are waiting to reunite with their families, or to find new families. Foster parents receive. The organization’s Education Centers offer early childhood education services for children aged 1 to 5 years.
The organization primarily accepts financial donations, but also welcomes donated items. Among the items needed by the children and families they serve are clothing for newborn to 5T sizes, size 2T to 10 children’s socks and underwear, children’s books, new infant car seats, and new convertible car seat. Baby wipes, disposable training pants (pull-up style), and diapers are also welcome.
Unlike the Salvation Army who have hundreds of clothing bins in the US, NCHS does not operate any themselves.
Donations are welcome at the Nebraska Children’s Home Society’s offices. Home pickup services are not available.
The Nebraska Children’s Home Society’s corporate headquarters are in Omaha and has ten offices within Nebraska. Its main area of operation is in Omaha, where its Children & Family Center, Early Childhood Education Center, and Foster Care Center are located.
