125 Years of Caring

In 1893, Grover Cleveland was president. The U.S. flag had 44 stars; the melody for the “Happy Birthday” song was first published; the first Ferris wheel debuted; and Lillian Gish, Harold Lloyd, Mae West and Dorothy Parker all were born. 1893 was an important year for another reason: Nebraska Children’s Home Society was formed. Today, the organization is celebrating 125 years and continuing to serve children across the state through a spectrum of services.
