What We Do
CEDARS is here to help children and youth achieve safety, stability, and enduring family relationships.
Kids come into foster care for a variety of reasons. Ultimately, CEDARS goal is to either safely reunite children with their families or find a permanent home for them. Until these goals can be achieved, foster families give kids stability and room to grow as individuals. During this critical time, foster families are able to have a lasting impact on the lives of kids in need of hope for their future.
CEDARS staff walk alongside children and families every step of the way. With encouragement, guidance and direction, the team has the honor of watching lives change.
The CEDARS Foster Care team works every day to ensure that hundreds of foster children and youth flourish in loving families. As an integral part of the CEDARS professional team, foster parents are equipped by CEDARS with exceptional training, have access to support 24/7 as well as monthly support groups and quarterly gatherings for foster families.
Thanks to community support, CEDARS is helping kids in crisis and building strong families in Omaha.
