Better for children. Better for all.

Families in crisis

Sometimes when kids need extra support, parents don’t know where to find help. Navigators help families in our programs in the Learning Community Center of South Omaha, Gateway Elementary, and Indian HIlls Educare. Family setbacks, like chronic illness and loss of employment, can interfere with learning. That’s why specially trained family liaisons are ready to step in and help the whole family. By connecting parents to affordable community resources, most students are back on track to succeed in school within 90 days.
