Who We Are
CEDARS mission is to help children and youth achieve safety, stability and enduring family relationships.
Thousands of kids and families have found refuge and a new beginning at CEDARS. And now, with offices in both Omaha and Lincoln, we're still one of Nebraska’s most trusted child-service organizations, making sure that kids feel safe and secure. At the same time, we’re giving parents, foster families, and partnering agencies the support they need to care effectively for kids. Join us as celebrate 75 years of CEDARS.
CEDARS is committed to financial responsibility. In the last fiscal year, CEDARS consolidated agencies spent 88% of all expenditures on services for children. Percentages are based on the formula set forth by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, whose standard recommends at least 65% of an organization’s total expenses be spent on program activities.
