Child Saving Institute Celebrates 130 Years of Helping Omaha Families Find Hope
For 130 years, Child Saving Institute (CSI, www.childsaving.org) has been dedicated to the prevention, intervention, and healing of child abuse, neglect, and trauma. What was once known as the leading agency providing infant adoption services, CSI today provides an array of services, all aligned to bring hope and healing to children, teens, and families.
CSI provides Early Childhood Education services; Foster Care services; an Emergency Shelter for teens needing a temporary place to live; Triage Center services in partnership with Project Harmony; and comprehensive Mental Health Services, including Therapy and Medication Management Services for children, teens, and young adults.
Most recently, CSI added its Family Empowerment Program in collaboration with the Women’s Center for Advancement (WCA) to assist parents and caregivers and their children who are survivors of domestic violence in the Omaha-metro.
The Family Empowerment Program offers a research-based model to help enhance life after domestic violence for survivors. Parents and caregivers attend adult group classes while children and youth engage in fun, interactive activities proven to address, process, and heal trauma. Together, families grow as a cohesive family unit and develop skills to find stability.
Child Saving Institute is dedicated to the prevention, intervention, and healing of child abuse, neglect, and trauma. To learn more about CSI and the programs and services offered, please visit www.childsaving.org or follow CSI on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
