Our Family Peer Support Specialists work with families in East Central Nebraska who are involved in the system of care. Our programs pair experienced advocates that have firsthand knowledge feeling the pain, guilt, frustration, anger and fear that many families are currently experiencing. Together we help them identify goals and to develop strategies for success. We use our lived experience and success to restore hope.
Our Programs include referrals through the Nebraska Family Helpline for families with youth in the Behavioral Health arena. With families in Child Welfare referred through Nebraska Families Collaborative. And families involved the Juvenile Justice system through the juvenile Assessment Center, Juvenile Probation and the Douglas County Youth Center. We hold twice monthly facilitated family support groups with child care provided by trained staff. We hold family events including a day at the Omaha Children's museum, Henry Doorly Zoo and celebration during Children's Mental Health Awareness week all at no cost to the families. We offer TARGETED PARENT ASSISTANCE and CIRCLE OF SECURITY education classes again at no cost to the families.
