Compass is committed to sharing the need for foster families in Nebraska. We are in search of Christian families who share a heart of compassion and a desire to serve children. It can be an intimidating idea for many to open their home to a child so we walk alongside families step by step. We provide training, ongoing support and financial assistance to cover the many expenses that come with adding a family member.
Our Foster Care Specialists also support foster families and children through regular consultation, coordination of support services, assisting with academic or behavior concerns, and by providing 24/7 on-call support.
One of the most exciting ways we also support foster families is through our Foster Parent Night Out evenings. Once each month, foster parents drop the kids off with us and we provide dinner, activities, and games while the foster parents enjoy a few hours of time on their own.
Compass has served hundreds of children and families since 2007. We are committed to children, centered on families and connected to the community. We want to challenge families to open their homes and live life alongside a child.
Compass gives families the skills, tools and financial resources that are needed to bring the mission field into their homes. Foster families provide love, guidance and hope to kids in need. For more information on how you can become a foster parent, CLICK HERE
