For nearly seven decades, thousands of vulnerable children and youth have found safe refuge and a new beginning at CEDARS. One of Nebraska’s most trusted child-service organizations, CEDARS makes sure that children 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 children. CEDARS responds to both immediate and long-term needs in serving abused, neglected and homeless children and families in need of support.
If you need help, call the National Crisis Hotline at 800-448-3000. It's open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and staffed by specially trained counselors representing more than 140 languages, along with a TDD line (800-448-1833). Parents, teens and families can find help with abuse, depression, chemical dependency, runaways, school issues, parenting troubles, and much more.
