Family Support Services
We offer individual support for parents and caregivers that focuses on self-sufficiency, childbirth and postpartum services, education and more.
Our Pathways to the Future self-sufficiency program provides voluntary home visitation services to parents and kinship caregivers. The program provides flexible one-on-one services to help clients make progress towards personal goals and access resources to meet identified needs.
Home Visiting Services
The Healthy Families America program serves low-income pregnant women, age 19 and older, living in Douglas County, while our Teen & Young Parent program serves pregnant and parenting teens, and young adults ages 25 and younger, residing anywhere within the Omaha-metro area, including Bellevue and Council Bluffs.
Within our home visitation programs, a trained Family Resource Specialist (FRS) provides weekly home visits where parents learn about the development of their child, from before birth through their fifth birthday. The specialist will also support each family’s goals and connect them with resources in the community to meet their needs.
Doula Services include pre-delivery meetings with a trained birth coach (doula) who provides information about delivery to the expectant mother and accompanies her throughout her journey. This service is available to current clients only.
Certified Lactation Consultants (CLCs) are available to new mothers enrolled in Nebraska Children’s Home Society’s home visitation programs. CLCs provide education and personalized guidance to support women in successful breastfeeding.
