Why our mission is so important
Our schools play a vital role in keeping our community strong and vibrant. CUES has been supporting youth in east Omaha since 1975.
Studies prove poverty negatively effects youth brain development and impacts the ability to learn, and 45% of children born into poverty repeat the cycle by age 35.
Many CUES School System students come from some of the most impoverished zip codes in Omaha; 65 percent of our families live in neighborhoods that fall 42 percent below Omaha’s median income. CUES Schools give these families the same opportunities found in other neighborhoods. students perform better academically, socially, and emotionally when they have the support and resources they need outside of the classroom.
