Family Empowerment Program

Healing and Hope for Survivors of Domestic Violence

All children deserve happy childhoods. In order to achieve safety and happiness for all children, we understand that their parent/caregiver must be safe and heal from past trauma.

Child Saving Institute (CSI) and the Women’s Center for Advancement’s (WCA) collaborative Family Empowerment Program, is designed to aid parents/caregivers and their children who are survivors of domestic violence in the Omaha-metro.

About the Curriculum

The Family Empowerment Program curriculum allows for parents/caregivers and their children to process past trauma and properly heal in order to rebuild a brighter, happier future. Parents and caregivers attend classes while children and youth engage in fun, interactive activities proven to address, process and heal trauma. Together, families will grow and develop skills to find stability and new hope.

We proudly offer services to all members of our community who are survivors of interpersonal or intimate partner violence (IPV), regardless of age, race, material status or gender identity. We understand each family is individual and unique. We work to walk alongside those we serve to help find hope in the future and to heal from the past.
