Nebraska Children’s Home Society


Program Overview: The mission of the Nebraska Children’s Home Society is to provide safe and loving care to children of all ages. The Nebraska Children’s Home Society (NCHS) is the only agency that has not charged fees for adoption services for more than 115 years. Their experience in the care of children extends beyond the field of adoption. Services now include foster care, early childhood education, parenting, pregnancy, post-adoption and neighborhood-based services. The majority of its funding comes from current and past contributions from individuals, foundations, organizations and corporations. Many people have visited or heard about the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year-Sand in the City, a corporate sand-sculpting competition held annually in June. When the event opens for viewing and activities, thousands of visitors attend in support of the Nebraska Children’s Home Society.

Volunteer Opportunities: The organization is now recruiting more than 100 volunteers for the Sand in the City event weekend June 3-5th. If interested in volunteering, contact Tracy Fisher at (402) 898-7783. Other volunteer opportunities and funding opportunities for special projects are always welcome and needed. NCHS is located in 10 locations across the state, two locations are in Omaha. Call (402) 451-0787 to learn more about ongoing, office or eventrelated volunteer opportunities, or visit online at www.nchs.org.
