LFS services for children fall into three categories: Prevention and Early Intervention, Permanency and Well-Being, and Children’s Behavioral Health.
Investment in Prevention and Early Intervention programming has the greatest payoff for the child, the family and society at large. Research consistently estimates $7 saved for every $1 spent on such programs.
LFS Prevention and Early Intervention programs include three Centers for Healthy Families, special initiatives in high poverty areas, Maternal Health Care, and the Family Liaison Program. As part of the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties, LFS Family Liaisons work with at-risk families to reduce truancy and other barriers to learning and achievement.
