How the Visionary Projects We Fund Are Tranforming Lincoln

  • In 2015, CHE helped fund MilkWorks, a non-profit specializing in breastfeeding support, through a grant for the larger Lincoln Breastfeeding Initiative. Working closely with other CHE grantees, MilkWorks has since greatly impacted low-income and culturally diverse mothers in Lincoln through their Community Breastfeeding Educators project.

  • In 2015, St. Monica's Behavioral Health Services for Women sought a CHE grant to fund a pilot program that offered women struggling with addiction or mental instabilities a chance to explore and ultimately overcome their issues through a perfectly Midwestern companionship: human and horse. St. Monica's results, like the project concept itself, have proved to be exceptional.

  • In 2015, CHE proudly funded an imaginative approach to tackling food disparities in Lincoln. The Veggie Van, a project from Community Crops, has since been making waves in the community as it brings fresh produce to low-income and refugee families. Lamya Ali, a local translator, understands what this van means to Lincolnites.
