Child Saving Institute (CSI, is grateful to announce they broken ground on its $46 million Campaign for Hope expansion project in mid-October. This milestone was possible thanks to a generous pledge of $11 million from the Heider Family Foundation and major support from other likeminded donors in our community. This combined commitment brings CSI one step closer to realizing its vision of providing essential services to the Omaha community and expanding access to pediatric and mental health services, youth emergency shelter and early childhood education.

While embarking on its groundbreaking ceremony, CSI extended its gratitude to all its community partners who supported them on this journey thus far. Together, a brighter future will be created for the Omaha community by expanding vital services and offering hope to those who need it most. They cannot begin to express their immense gratitude to each and every donor who has shown faith in CSI and its mission by pledging their resources to make this amazing community project a reality.

CSI invites the community to continue aligning their support with their cause as they work tirelessly to achieve its campaign goal. Your contributions will play a pivotal role in enhancing the lives of children, families and individuals who rely on the services and programs provided by CSI. Learn more or support the cause at
