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
- The Fatherhood Initiative Project
- Family Liaison Program
- and now LFS KinCare Nebraska.
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.
