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 have proven that 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.

• 90% of our elementary students go on to graduate high school compared to 68% nationally.

• In 2019, 38% of CUES graduates participated in Upward Bound – a program with mentors and tutors for college entry.
