Community Well Being
Nebraska Children and Families Foundation in partnership with community collaboratives and state and national partners are proud to announce Bring Up Nebraska, a statewide prevention initiative designed to give LOCAL community partnerships the ability to develop LONG-TERM plans using the LATEST strategies and data to prevent life’s challenges from becoming a crisis for many Nebraska families and children.
Bring Up Nebraska is an alternative approach that seeks to strengthen families and enhance child well-being without the intervention of the child welfare system. By working within communities, and bringing all of its strengths and services together in a coordinated way, families can be served before warning signs become a crisis. Participants in a community collaboratives are nonprofit service providers, doctors, mental health practitioners, schools, churches, housing and transportation services, and even utility companies. The goal is to give families what they need to thrive so they can stay together, remain self-sufficient, and support the health and learning of their children.
