Child Saving Institute Partnership to Help Children, Families of Domestic Violence

Child Saving Institute (CSI, has partnered with the Women’s Center for Advancement (WCA) to launch a new program to bring healing and hope to children and their parents and caregivers who are survivors of domestic violence in the Omaha-metro area. The collaborative Family Empowerment Program is designed to aid hope and healing for parents/caregivers and their children (ages 4-13) who have experienced domestic or interpersonal violence, regardless of age, race, material status, or gender identity.

“All children deserve happy childhoods,” said CSI President and CEO Peg Harriott. “In order to achieve safety and happiness for all children in our community, we understand that their parent or caregiver must be safe and heal from past trauma. We are thrilled to partner with the WCA to provide this new program model to those in need of these services in Omaha.”

The Family Empowerment Program was supported by Grant Number 90EV0472 from the Administration on Children, Youth and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Survivors of domestic violence may be referred to the Family Empowerment Program through community partners. Individuals may also inquire about program participation by contacting CSI directly.
