The Child Saving Institute (CSI) recently received grants totaling $132,900 from United Way of the Midlands (UWM). Combined with other donations, the grants will allow CSI to offer uninterrupted free services to children who participate in the nonprofit’s School & Family Enrichment (SAFE), Kid Squad, Teen & Young Parent Program (TYPP), and Independent Living Skills (ILS) programs. United Way also provided funding to support the Child Saving Institute’s emergency shelter and mental-health services therapy program, as well as funding for COVID-19 response.

United Way of the Midlands has served the Omaha-Council Bluff’s metro for more than 95 years. UWM invests donor dollars to fund basic needs, education, and financial-stability programs at local nonprofits, creating a circle of support for people in need.
