We strive to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty through the Pathway of Hope initiative, offering strengths-based casework to families with children 18 years of age and younger. Services provided include financial counseling and planning, job training and referrals, assistance with housing, and spiritual support. Pathway of Hope works with people where they are, offering practical guidance to help families overcome obstacles and achieve their big-picture goals, one step at a time.
Often it's the smallest things that make the biggest difference: a fan to bring cool relief on a hot day, help paying the electric bill so there's enough money for groceries, or a backpack filled with school supplies so a child is prepared for school. Our material assistance programs provide groceries, clothing and household items, assistance paying for prescription medications and utilities, fans, backpacks and school supplies, and Christmas meal assistance.
Chances are, you know someone who is struggling to put food on the table. Thousands of adults and children in Nebraska, South Dakota and western Iowa are food insecure and don't know where to find their next meal. We address this critical problem by offering multiple food services, including food pantries, lunch and dinnertime community meals, mobile food distribution, and summer lunch programs for school-age children.
As the saying goes, there's no place like home, but sadly, thousands of displaced families, older adults and veterans in our three-state region are not able to enjoy that basic need. We help those without a home climb out of poverty through permanent supportive housing, transitional housing and emergency shelter, ensuring that adults and children have a safe place to live, grow and thrive.
