Benefits Child Saving Institute
For over 100 years, Child Saving Institute has facilitated healing for children and families in crisis. Today, our 120+ employees provide vital services to the community from our main building at 45th & Dodge, and from two other locations throughout Omaha/Council Bluffs. At its core, CSI exists to help children and families. We’re tireless in our mission to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect. We provide emergency services to children and teens in crisis. And we offer therapy for physically and sexually abused children. Additionally, CSI is a community leader in preventive family education, preservation, and childcare.
CSI also provides hope. We help to nurture a positive family dynamic by recruiting foster and adoptive families for children and teens. And we present a unique and holistic approach to treating substance abuse in young people through the JOURNEYS program, a collaborative effort with two other important Omaha organizations, Catholic Charities and Omaha Home for Boys.
CSI is funded by private donations, government grants and contracts, and the United Way of the Midlands.
Even people who know nothing about old cars know what this is. The 1957 Chevy Belair is probably the most famous model from the era. It’s unmistakable for anything else! This ’57 has been fully restored and said to be in “mint condition!” (For those of you in the Omaha area Channel 6 WOWT is a sponser of this event!)
