KVC Nebraska is a private, nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports foster parents to care for children ages birth to 18. Foster families not only provide a safe and caring environment for children who have experienced abuse, neglect or other family challenges; they also help children heal from trauma and create a brighter future. Foster care gives a child and his or her birth family the opportunity to resolve conflicts or disruptions and learn health skills so the child can safely return home.
