Nebraska Children and Families Foundation has a unique approach to solving large, complex social issues that affect our state’s children. It’s based on two core beliefs:
- Prevention works. It’s the most effective and fiscally responsible approach for addressing complex social problems.
- Channeling a community’s existing resources toward a common goal will maximize their effectiveness.
Every initiative we undertake aligns with these principles. Our programs are preventive in nature, designed to keep children out of the welfare and criminal justice systems from cradle to career. And our approach encompasses all the resources a community has to offer, helping to ensure community ownership of the process and outcomes. The end goal is to prepare all of Nebraska’s children for success in school and in life.
