Building Blocks for Community Enrichment, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 1999.  We saw children separated from their biological families by hundreds of miles simply because there were so few foster homes in our area.  Our goal is to recruit, license, and support foster homes in Northern and Central Nebraska.  We aim to make Foster Parents successful by providing them training and support as they care for youth in our area.
