All children deserve a chance.

Not just any chance, but a true opportunity
To have a childhood.
To dream.
To reach their fullest potential.

Reaching Out

More children are struggling with mental health issues today than ever before. In fact, behavioral and emotional disorders affect thousands of children right here in our community. And it is a sad truth that two-thirds of these kids never receive the help they need.

The good news is that treatment does work for those who receive it.

Child Guidance Center is dedicated to providing child-centered, family-focused mental health services in Lincoln. Utilizing a combination of unique programs and proven strategies to meet every individual's needs, we serve more than 2,000 children and adolescents each year.

The services we provide are available to all youth throughout the community, regardless of financial ability.
