Throwback Thursday: Splash Day

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday is making a splash!

This 9 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ black and white photograph shows three children at the Nebraska Children’s Home Society during the 1950s. The children at the Nebraska Children’s Home were provided with many activities to participate in, including playing in the sprinklers during the hot summer months.

This image is published and owned by the Nebraska Children’s Home Society. Chartered on September 1, 1893, the Nebraska Children’s Home Society founders had a vision for a better future and believed that every child deserved a family. NCHS offered support and assistance to parents committed to keeping their family together, and provided foster and adoptive homes for children who could not stay with their families. The agency has never charged fees for adoptions services, and still today relies primarily on private donations to fund its services. The commitment to “safe and loving care” in a family setting remains a hallmark of NCHS services.
