Caring For Native American Youth And Their Families

The Society of Care is a trauma and resilience resource for self-identified Native American youth and their families in Nebraska. We care for our relatives by providing accessible, affordable and culturally sensitive behavioral care. As passionate advocates, we give Native youth a voice, connect them to services, provide wellness education, instill cultural pride, and empower them to build resilience. We believe in a brighter future for our relatives and are guided by caring deeply, transforming lives and healing communities.

Society of Care is Changing Lives and Empowering Communities.

We fill a critical need and are making a difference! Native American families in Nebraska have endured generations of struggle and marginalization. The legacy of this history is seen in disproportionate rates of poverty, illness and behavioral health concerns. Trauma impacts every facet of life, yet Native Americans are strong and resilient. We are honored to work alongside and assist our relatives.

Community Voices

“We have been utilizing the resources that the Society of Care offers for almost three years. My oldest son receives therapeutic services. I use Navigator services to help find resources. Society of Care has been there for me during very difficult times. They gave my family and me the sense of security that we needed to overcome the struggles we had. Thank you for the help creating the strength that my family has today.”

“She has such a clear understanding of the needs of children impacted by trauma, yet she also has the compassion and genuine desire to follow-through in often difficult circumstances. Her perseverance and willingness to listen have made possible the training, consultation and telepsychiatry services directly benefiting children.”
