It’s time for another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!
This week, we have a 9 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ black and white photograph of a summer badminton game at the Nebraska Children’s Home during the 1920s.
This image is published and owned by the Nebraska Children’s Home Society. The founders of the Nebraska Children’s Home 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 adoption services and still today relies primarily on private donations to fund its services. NCHS has committed itself best practices based on the welfare of a child.
