As a community collaborative serving Lancaster County, Nebraska, we know that:
Lancaster Connected, as a community collaborative, stands with families, for families and celebrates family in its many different forms. We exist to elevate family well-being and believe this starts with listening to families, trusting their lived expertise, and working in partnership to inform and inspire new opportunities. We work to engage a cross-section of community leaders and value the advantages of diverse perspectives.
Lancaster Connected was established in November 2021. Utilizing a Collective Impact approach, our collaborative seeks to build public-private partnerships that can lead to transformational change in our community for children and families. Through Lancaster Connected, we are able to bring together diverse organizations and partners to address issues impacting children, youth and families in a way that is too complex for any one agency to solve on its own. We seek to build connections, improve communication and coordination and reduce duplication of efforts.
United Way of Lincoln and Lancaster County services as the backbone agency for the work of Lancaster Connected with funding and leadership support provided by Nebraska Children’s and Family Foundation.
The following areas have been identified by our Collaborative to guide the focus of our work over the course of the next two years (2023-2025):
