Society of Care is a leading trauma and resilience resource for Native American youth, their families, caretakers, and communities promoting wellness and delivering quality culturally sensitive care with flexibility and confidentiality. We make a difference by caring deeply, transforming lives and healing communities.
WHO DO WE SERVE?
Native American youth, families, and communities throughout Nebraska regardless of tribal affiliation.
Availability of behavioral health assistance is very limited in Nebraska. This is especially true for Native American youth and families who face additional concerns with stigma, trust issues, cultural competent care, isolation, and historical trauma that have led to under-utilization of scarce mental health resources.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Society of Care provides trustworthy, accessible, affordable and culturally sensitive behavioral health care, education, prevention services, and support. We understand our relatives. Over 80% of our team are Native American. Our relatives have a voice and role in their care. Our navigators and outreach specialists connect families with services for their needs and passionately advocates for them. With an unwavering belief in a brighter future for Native youth, families and communities, Society of Care empowers youth, strengthens families and impacts their quality of life.
We offer trauma-trained, culturally aware care, community based and guided services, workforce development and education, and strive to change systems to improve lives and measurement. Specific interventions include evidence-based therapy, parenting strategies and psychoeducation and cultural support and re-education.
Society of Care assures the effectiveness of service by closely monitoring, evaluating, and adapting our approaches.
Society of Care has a physical presence in the reservation communities of Santee, Macy, Walthill, and Winnebago as well as in metropolitan Omaha and Lincoln and frontier communities in the Nebraska panhandle including Alliance, Chadron, Gordon, and Rushville.
Licensed behavioral health providers provide treatment throughout the region through telehealth and in person care. Telehealth allows for greater flexibility and confidentiality and is very convenient for those in rural areas.
Society of Care Navigators – outreach specialists educate youth and families as true partners in care, and strive to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of systems serving youth.
