Youth Programs

How We Work

Community Action Partnership of Western Nebraska Youth Programs has programming in all 11 counties of the Panhandle to help area youth in need. We offer innovative programming ranging from prevention to intervention and aftercare that is based in a trauma informed philosophy.  Housing Programs are a licensed provider for DHHS and Probation.

Trauma Informed Care is a strength based framework that is grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma, that emphasizes physical, psychological, and emotional safety for both providers and survivors and that creates opportunities for survivors to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment. We believe in building developmental assets with our young people by providing high quality services and staff  who understand the building blocks that need to be in place for youth to grow and become caring, competent adults.
