Bring Up Nebraska is a statewide prevention partnership to advocate for local community collaboratives that keep children safe, support strong parents, and help families address life's challenges before they become a crisis.
75 and Growing
After a 2-year delay, Bring Up Nebraska partners were finally able to gather in Lincoln to celebrate how Nebraska has become a national leader on building a community-based well-being system! On April 13-14, leaders from many of the community collaboratives across the state met with state and national partners in Lincoln.

“We need to look at any child in need as one of our own, not as the state’s responsibility or Washington’s concern but one of our own kids. These are Nebraska’s kids. And we need to be the solution. I want Nebraska’s local community approach to be a model for other states to follow when it comes to preventing problems from becoming a crisis for families and children.”
