If you’re like us, you know that preventing a problem now is more effective and less expensive than fixing a disaster farther down the road. That’s how we work. Nebraska Children pulls communities together to better serve vulnerable families today, so their children will thrive in school, in life and in Lincoln's workforce tomorrow.
Nebraska Children has many investments in Lincoln, including early childhood education, support for afterschool and summer learning opportunities, and Project Everlast, which supports young people as they transition from foster care to adulthood. Nebraska Children is leading a collaboration to build a community-based child abuse prevention systems that keeps kids safe and provides at-risk families the supports they need to stay out of crisis.
