Tabitha Meals on Wheels began in 1967 as the first service of its kind in Lincoln, Nebraska. Today they serve a hot, noon meal to more than 500 clients daily, 365 days per year. Unlike many other Meals on Wheels programs around the country, Tabitha Meals on Wheels continues to say yes to all those needing this lifeline service, regardless of their circumstances or resources, and has not capped program numbers despite a 62 percent growth rate in the last 10 years. Access to proper nutrition is often one of the last factors allowing Seniors and those with disabilities to remain safely at home. Tabitha’s service provides an invaluable face-to-face safety check, as well, for many medically vulnerable individuals who may not see another person all day.

May 12, 2016 – 100s of Women donates $15,400 to Autism Family Network

Autism Family Network (AFN) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization located in Lincoln, Nebraska, which was founded in 2006 with a passion, love, and desire to help families who have children with autism. The founder of Autism Family Network worked as a Pediatric Behavior Nurse Specialist, assisting in the care of approximately 250 children on the autism spectrum. In this role, it became apparent that there were joys and struggles experienced by these families. Many parents seemed exhausted, isolated, and floundering for connection and answers to questions. The goal is to provide a safe place for families to share their smiles and stories and shed their tears with those who truly understand “to know they are not alone.” It is a place that they can find help amidst frustration and connect among others sharing similar life challenges and joys.
