Completely KIDS assists more than 2,000 youth in preschool through middle school, via school and homeless shelter partnerships, to overcome barriers to their success due to poverty. When we think about our community, we imagine one that is safe, healthy, successful and connected. We work with families to empower them with the skills to create such a community. Each weekend we provide food to nearly 500 of Omaha's most critically in need children.
Research shows that growing up in poverty can have a significant impact on a child's cognitive development, emotional well-being and physical health, thus impacting their ability to be successful. Completely KIDS has consistently seen the impacts of poverty in the lives of the families it works with and has developed program components to specifically address each area of need: Safe KIDS, Healthy KIDS, Successful KIDS, Connected KIDS.
