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.

Bucket List of Benevolence

Want to spread some positivity in your life? Create a benevolent bucket list. Think of it as a “Kind Acts” list where you write down things to do to spread happiness and positivity in others’ lives. Focus on how to benefit your personal community and acts of kindness that can be anonymous. Here are just a few items that should definitely be on your bucket list of benevolence:

  • Leave flowers on a stranger’s doorstep
  • Leave $5 in a book at a bookstore
  • Start a gratitude journal
  • Donate to a nonprofit
  • Volunteer for a community event
  • Run a charity 5K
  • Pay for coffee for a stranger
  • Make a mixed CD for a friend
  • Donate canned food for a food drive
  • Leave inspirational messages on sticky notes in a public place
  • And some of your own!
