Established in 1908 as Social Settlement Association of Omaha, we underwent a name change to Kids Can Community Center in 2009 to better reflect programs offered. Our mission is to educate, engage, and inspire children through early childhood care and out-of-school experiences. We believe all children deserve enriching educational experiences despite socio-economic barriers.
We offer state-licensed out-of-school programming serving children ages 5 to 13 years old. Our center on 49th and Q Street operates Monday through Friday from 6 AM to 6 PM and offers before-school, after-school, and full-day programs when school is closed for holidays, in-service days, and all breaks including an uninterrupted summer program. In June, we will begin programming at Nelson Mandela Elementary. In partnership with Collective For Youth, KCCC provides after-school programming on regularly scheduled school days at Gilder, Miller Park, and Wakonda Elementary Schools.
