United Way Grant Funds Critical Programs for At-Risk Kids

Child Saving Institute (CSI) (www.childsaving.org) recently received grants totaling $171,600 from the United Way of the Midlands. Thanks, in part, to the generosity of United Way donors, CSI can continue offering free services to children who participate in the agency’s School and Family Enrichment (SAFE), KidSquad, Teen & Young Parent, and Independent Living Skills programs. The United Way also provided funding to support the agency’s Emergency Shelter and Therapy programs.

“Funding from United Way supports critical programs for the prevention, intervention, and healing of child abuse, neglect, and trauma right here in the metropolitan Omaha area,” said Peg Harriott, CSI president and CEO. “With help from United Way donors, children and families have the chance to find hope and healing.”

United Way of the Midlands focuses the efforts of many to help their neighbors stand strong by addressing basic needs and fostering success in the classroom and the workplace. To learn more, visit www.unitedwaymidlands.org.
