Connected Youth Initiative

Thanks to the federal Social Innovation Fund grant and a substantial investment from private and community partners, Nebraska Children is expanding into rural communities the older youth system of care model pioneered by the Panhandle's Social Services for Rural Homeless Youth initiative, with insight from lessons learned implementing the Project Everlast model in more urban settings. We're currently building Connected Youth Communities and collaborations across rural Nebraska to help young people with experience in the foster care and juvenile justice systems, struggling with homelessness, or who are disconnected from a family structure.
