CEDARS Gives Children a Safe Place They Can Call Home

Cool Story - CEDARS Gives Children a Safe Place They Can Call Home

 

CEDARS Home for Children is an organization that works to give children a safe place to live. They work with children during every step of their lives, to give them the support they need. Through their many solutions, CEDARS works towards giving children everything they need to give children a good home. CEDARS also works with families, offering them services to keep them together. CEDARS doesn’t work alone, they enlist the help of other organizations to give children and families the aid they need. Policymakers, child welfare champions, trauma specialists, and other such people have come together to provide crucial shelter for children. Whatever problems the homeless may be facing, CEDARS will be there to help.      

 

CEDARS is an organization with an important goal. That goal is to give children and youth the safety and certainty of a good home. CEDARS has been giving children and families protection for about 75 years. They are one of the best organizations of its kind operating in Nebraska. CEDARS wants the children and families they serve to feel safe in their organization. CEDARS also provides parents and families with the services they need for successful child care. This is an organization that cares about spending its money wisely. In 2021, CEDARS used 88 percent of its funds on important child care services and programs. 

 

The organization known as CEDARS started out in 1947. Reverend Charles Danner and his wife Alberta took in a young child who had no home to go to. Soon, the two of them allowed even more children to share their home. After the number of children became too numerous, the Lincoln Community decided to help. They bought a bigger property for all of the children the Danners were housing. Because of all of the cedar trees in the area, the building was called CEDARS Home for Children. 75 years later, CEDARS is still at it, giving children the protective and loving home they deserve. Though lots of things have changed in the world since the founding of CEDARS, their mission hasn't. They still work to help as many children and families as they can. 

 

CEDARS helps all kinds of children and families through its services. If children are unable to live at home for any reason, CEDARS can help. They will provide children ages birth to 18 with a caring foster family. The foster program at CEDARS helps to get children in a better place than they were before. Children can either return home or be permanently adopted or live on their own, depending on the situation.

CEDARS doesn’t just want to help children; they want to assist the entire family. There is a wide variety of programs made with this goal in mind. Family resources are provided to keep families together and ensure they are stable. Services offered include Healthy Families Home Visiting, Sixpence, Partners in Permanency, and Community Response. CEDARS also has an Early Childhood Development Center. This program gives children important educational opportunities, as well as social and emotional skills.
