About

Helping People, Changing Lives

Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska is a Community Action Partnership and member of a national network of over 1,000 community action agencies across America.  We are a non-profit community based health and human services organization that serves low-income, disadvantaged, and those unable to meet their needs through other sources.  The agency was established in 1965 and provides services to over 9,000 individuals, children and families in three main program areas:

 

Community Health Services

Clinical Health Services

Supportive Health Services

 

 

As a Community Action Partnership our vision is to create communities where everyone has an opportunity for a successful life. Our mission is to strengthen people and communities to help themselves and improve lives.

While some programs serve a wider area, the main service area is the southern panhandle area of Nebraska. The agencies’ programs impact hundreds of lives daily through their dedicated work.

 

Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska’s home office and community health center are located in Gering. The agency holds a 501(C) (3) designation by the Internal Revenue Service and is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of community leaders, low-income representatives and elected officials.
