Heartland Family Service, founded in Omaha in 1875, is a non-profit, non-sectarian social work agency. HFS helps parents who struggle; couples who want to save their relationship; children who are removed from unsafe homes; teens who made the wrong decisions about alcohol, drugs or crime; survivors of family violence; low-income families–mostly women and children–who fall into homelessness; and many, many more who need a helping hand to get back on track.
