Offering Hope to Families in Crisis

Families 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 Works

Upon 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
