We CARE for teens with special needs
Teens gaining independence by learning vocational skills.
We are here to create a caring community
Our Place After School Care encourages teenagers with special needs, ages 13-20, to practice academic, social, and life skills and enable them to be involved in community service and enriching experiences.
In August 2018, Our Place After School Care started an after-school program for teens with disabilities, the first of its kind in Nebraska. In November of 2022, our program wanted our teens to experience a level of independence gained by productive work that gives a monetary return. We opened a store called Freedom Factory where our teens can sell the items they create on commission.
We continue to blaze a trail for other communities to provide this needed service for their families who care for teens with disabilities.
