​Haircare Survey

In partnership between Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Nebraska Children and Families Foundation (NCFF) and Project Everlast, the Citizen Review Panel (CRP) is composed of 14 to 26-year-olds with direct experience in Nebraska's child welfare, juvenile justice and/or homeless systems. The CRP produced recommendations to CFS to begin providing "foster youth and parents the needed support and resources to ensure proper haircare for foster children members". ​Go to the survey page.
