Connected Youth Initiative (CYI) - Central Navigation 

Through a subgrant from the Nebraska Children and Families Foundation to the Hall County Community Collaborative, Heartland CASA is contracted to provide Central Navigation for the Connected Youth Iniative (CYI).  CYI is designed to serve "unconnected youth”  in Hall, Adams, Buffalo, Clay, Dawson, Franklin, Hamilton, Harlan, Howard, Kearney, Merrick, Nuckolls, Phelps, and Webster counties. Unconnected youth are defined as young people aged 14-24 (up to their 25th birthday) who are currently or have been in the Nebraska foster care system, have had contact with child protective services, have had experience with the juvenile justice system (but are not on probation), or are homeless or near homeless.

Central Access Navigation is a  coordinated approach that ensures CYI participants get access to all of the services they need in a streamlined, common-sense way. By coordinating services and helping youth navigate them through a central access point, the collaboration can avoid duplication of efforts and effectively track the progress of young people.  

For more information or questions, call 308-385-5125 or email the Central Navigator at .  

For after office hours assistance, please call 308-385-5125 and leave a message for Executive Director Susan Danehey.
