Nebraska Good Life. Great Mission. Dept. of Health and Human Services


Watch leaders from the Nebraska Department of Child and Family Services discuss why it is important to have a strong child welfare workforce and partner with the QIC-WD.

Our priorities in Nebraska are to keep families together and prevent or reduce the number of children in out-of-home placements. It’s our goal to learn tools, strategies and best practices from the experts on the QIC-WD team and the other selected child welfare systems to increase CFSS workers' job retention and satisfaction. We expect this effort will improve our service to the children and families we serve.
