Voices for Children in Nebraska is the independent voice building pathways to opportunity for all children and families through research, policy, and community engagement.


We will engage the public and state leaders to build systems removing obstacles and promoting opportunities for all children to lead healthy, secure, and fulfilling lives.


Informed research drives our direction. When a policy is good, we support it; when it is harmful, we fight it; when it is missing, we can create it. Community engagement is how we promote systems change.

Most agencies focus on helping one child at a time and that is important, but we also have to work to address the larger challenges like poverty and hunger that result in children needing community supports in the first place. Policy victories for Nebraska’s children don’t just happen by accident. Using thorough research and skilled advocacy, Voices for Children is committed to ensuring that all Nebraska children continue to have a vital and trusted resource and voice in every classroom, courtroom, newsroom, and legislative chamber in the state.
