bsbc2 smlThis morning Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska presented a “Fearless Grant” at the Youth Emergency Services Street Outreach Center.

Welcome and Opening remarks were made by Marjorie Maas, the BCBSNE Director of Cororate Social Responsibility, and Mayor Jean Stothert.

Toba Cohen-Dunning, OPSF Executive Director and Steve Kinkead, OPSF Board President were present to accept the grant.

Omaha Public Schools Foundation and the Methodist Community Counseling Program are grateful for the Fearless Grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska.

Together with their help, we will be able to provide free counseling to students and their families – at times of crisis. This unique partnership with the Methodist Community Counseling Program allows us to place a counselor in every Omaha Public High School and Middle School.

Counselors help students deal with issues like bullying, depression, suicide, gangs, and drug & alcohol abuse.  And those are just to name a few.  Growing up is hard.  At a time when students and their families need a place to turn to for help, the Community Counseling Program is there to listen, guide and be a free resource for those that need it the most.

Annually, the program helps more than 16,000 students and members of our community.  It’s because of generous community partners like Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska that allow our counselors to help students get back on the right path. We are grateful for this investment and the collective impact we are making on mental health for our kids – the future of the Omaha community.
