What We Do

CEDARS mission is to help children achieve safety, stability and enduring family relationships.

Right now, we are raising funds for The Heart of CEDARS, an essential facilities improvement project that will allow us to continue to ensure the health and safety of kids comes first, now and in the future. The kindness of our community has helped us raise 90% of our goal needed to make The Heart of CEDARS a reality. But the kids still need you!

Please consider donating to CEDARS. We have been serving Lincoln, Omaha and surrounding areas for over 70 years, and your gift during Do Good Week will help us continue to support kids and families for years to come.

CEDARS is here to ensure that all kids have a safe environment where they can grow and thrive. We walk alongside them, using a holistic approach that provides support from infancy through young adulthood, with a variety of services to meet individual needs.

We’re also here to walk with families, offering them resources, opportunities and education to keep their family connections strong. Our approach is trauma-informed and honors the experiences of those we serve, so families can become stronger and kids can preserve those connections as a central part of their support system.

These needs can't be met by one person, entity or organization alone. That's why we join together with friends like you from across our community to support kids and families. We embrace this kind of togetherness that changes lives.

Interesting Info
