Who We Are

All families face challenges. Asking for help can often be difficult. And knowing where to turn for help can be problematic.

Bring Up Nebraska believes LOCAL communities are best situated and most motivated to understand their own needs and strengths as they relate to:

  • Reducing entry into the child welfare system and other higher end systems of care (behavioral health, juvenile justice, etc.) and
  • Increasing informal and formal community supports for children and families

Bring Up Nebraska knows preventing crises requires LONG-TERM plans that will:

  • Identify and support solutions to remove barriers in community-based prevention efforts; 
  • Raise awareness of what is working and what is needed to promote a community-based model around prevention. We want Nebraska to be recognized for its successful prevention efforts;
  • Bring local, state, and national partners together to develop new strategies around prevention for Nebraska—including setting priority policies and practices; and 
  • Make sure that all communities in Nebraska have more support and opportunities for community-based prevention
