Sometimes, you don’t know all of the GOOD that is happening in Omaha until you ask. At SHARE Omaha, we wanted to know what’s happening at Nebraska Center for Workforce Development and Education. The response from Ginny Czechut, Events and Development Director, was even more special than we anticipated.
“Project Reset, a program at Nebraska Center for Workforce Development and Education which specifically mentors justice-involved individuals into a career in the skilled trades and labor industry, was contacted by a Gang Intervention Specialist for the Omaha Police Department who had made a connection with a group of young men who are on juvenile probation and part of a new local street gang.”
When children are removed from home due to abuse or neglect, they often leave with only the clothes on their back and whatever personal items can be hastily gathered up into a trash bag.
From June 11-18, 2021, during a special Project Hope Pack Drive, we have an opportunity to provide hope and dignity to Omaha metro children facing scary changes.
CASA for Douglas County partners with a network of 14 child-serving agencies in our community to distribute Project Hope Packs to children entering foster care or being moved between placements. These backpacks contain essential hygiene and comfort items and serve as a sign of hope to boost children’s spirits and promote dignity and resilience in the face of adversity.
