For more than a century, Jewish Family Service of Omaha has provided crucial aid and support to the community. Our mission as a human service agency is to strengthen and preserve life in the Jewish community and the community at large through every stage of the life cycle. Jewish Family Service provides essential services to the Jewish community and the Omaha community at large. Despite the challenges presented by working remotely for over a year due to COVID-19, JFS was able to not only continue to serve its clients, but also to expand its services to increase its mental health outreach. JFS was also at the forefront in providing crucial financial assistance to those in our community adversely affected by the pandemic. The support and respect from our community was evident in the record breaking 2021 Friends Campaign, with over $42,000 raised to further the high-quality services JFS can provide today and in the future. JFS remains well-positioned to serve those in the community who are most in need.

Requirements to become a foster parent

If you're worried about being on your own as a foster parent, don't be! Many resources are available to families.

There are plenty of educational materials on the Nebraska DHHS website. You can learn about definitions and common phrases, Medicaid for foster youth, and what it means to become a resource parent. Plus, there are consultants available to resource families.

Remember, there's plenty of information you can find online as well. From blogs to books, there's no shortage of educational materials for foster parents. Many informative materials cost nothing and teach you invaluable tips.

You'll work closely with your local foster care agency. You'll always have at least one point of contact to turn to if you have questions.

Don't forget about creating a support network. Make sure to include other foster parents and advocates from your area. You'll face obstacles on your journey, such as navigating the legal system or saying goodbye. Having the right person on your side for support makes all the difference.

Took me in and filed all necessary paperwork for not only aid in living; but in the JCC facility. Trips to Israel are even offered to those who qualify.

This wonderful place has been a life saver for me. The staff goes out of there way to help you and if they can't right then they will. You're not forgotten. I don't know what I would have done if they weren't there. Groceries, furniture, gas cards and baskets for all the Jewish holidays. All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart.
