Offering Hope to Families in CrisisFamilies are referred to Saint Francis by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Every referral begins with an assessment that:
- Identifies priorities, concerns, and characteristics unique to the family.
- Helps Saint Francis identify supports that can keep children in the home.
How It WorksUpon referral, each family is assigned a therapist and a family skill builder. This is the Preservation Team. In addition, families are provided:
- Contact information and a phone number where they can reach their Preservation Team 24 hours a day.
- 15-minute response times from Saint Francis.
- Local offices where they can meet in person with Saint Francis staff
