CEDARS Expanding Services to Bellevue
A long-standing Nebraska-based nonprofit is expanding its services for children, youth and families into the Bellevue and Omaha, Nebraska area.
CEDARS (www.cedarskids.org), a child-caring organization already provides one-on-one advocacy and mentoring to youth in the Bellevue area to help them get back on track before they get deeper involved with law enforcement. With this expansion, additional services, including CEDARS Foster Care and Family Support programs will be in place to serve the community.
Because CEDARS foster parents are equipped with exceptional training, have access to the staff team 24/7, support groups, and quarterly gatherings for foster families, CEDARS is one of the most trusted foster care teams in the state.
CEDARS passion for helping kids in crisis and building strong families has been fueled by community involvement and support for over 70 years. Since its founding in Lincoln in 1947 by a loving couple who sought to provide a loving home for 22 children in need, the organization has been on a mission to provide safe refuge to children and youth who have no other safe place to spend the night.
Anyone wishing to join the growing CEDARS team as an employee, foster parent, or volunteer is encouraged to visit cedarskids.org.
