The Nebraska Children's Home Society was chartered September 1,1893. Nebraska Children's Home Society founders challenged the practice of placing abandoned, abused and neglected children in orphanages and "poor houses". NCHS Founders had a vision for a better future and believed that every child deserved a family. NCHS offered support and assistance to parents committed to keeping their family together, and provided foster and adoptive homes for children who could not stay with their families. The agency has never charged fees for adoptions services, and still today relies primarily on private donations to fund its services. In the ensuing years, NCHS has committed itself to best practices based on the welfare of a child. The commitment to "safe and loving care" in a family setting remains a hallmark of NCHS services.
