UNO Students Select Angels Among Us to Receive Assistance on Program Eval Process
Angels Among Us was recently selected by two students from the UNO School of Social Work, MSW Course: Social Work Research and Evaluation class who will work together on improving the nonprofit’s program evaluation process. After learning about the students’ requirement to do a service project, Angels Among Us submitted for assistance on enhancing their process so they can ensure they are best assisting their pediatric cancer families. The students reviewed each submission and determined that Angels Among Us best aligned with their goals for the class. Ultimately, this will have significant success on the organization as they will be able to better serve their families and make an impact to their situations through services offered. The outcomes of this partnership could include better surveying, feedback, and communication with cancer families; and, ultimately, being able to build a better relationship to ensure the best possible experience while receiving Angels Among Us’ support.
Angels Among Us is a Nebraska nonprofit that provides financial and emotional support to families whose children are battling pediatric cancer. Any family living in or being treated in Nebraska is eligible to apply for financial support. Thus far in 2020, Angels Among Us provided financial support to over 100 families and is on track to give over $500,000 in support by the end of the year to help with mortgages, rent, and other expenses.
