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.

Funds from CEDARS Home for Children Foundation not only provide major support for capital projects, but annual funding also provides stability and flexibility to continue CEDARS 75-year history of mission-based work to help children achieve safety, stability, and enduring family relationships. Because of this support, CEDARS is able to continue to do what we have done for 75 years and counting – be here for kids and families despite pandemics, fluctuations in the economy, or changes in government services. Our commitment is to the continuation of programs and services by CEDARS Youth Services so that CEDARS can be relied upon without fail by kids who need us most.
