Building Blocks for Community Enrichment, Inc.

is a non-profit organization founded in 1998.  Children were seen separated from their biological families by hundreds of miles simply because there were so few foster homes in their local area.  Building Blocks recruits, licenses, and supports foster homes in Northern and Central Nebraska. Building Blocks aims to make Foster Parents successful by providing them training and support as they care for youth in our area.
