In the CUES School System, it truly is a team effort. Below are the community partners who serve our students and families on a daily basis. These partners provide financial support, after school care, enrichment opportunities, and other services. As an organization we are so grateful to have these amazing non-profits and companies supporting our mission.
Children’s Scholarship Fund
Children’s Scholarship Fund of Omaha provides partial tuition scholarship’s to our qualifying low-income families so they can access the quality education of CUES Schools. This partnership is crucial as our low-income student population continues to grow. CUES School System staff works with Children’s Scholarship Fund staff to help ensure families qualify and apply for the scholarship funding every year.
Heart Ministry Center
The Heart Ministry Center, due to its convenient location to Sacred Heart, has been a wonderful community resource for families for food pantry needs, health and/or dental needs, job training, and social work assistance. A caseworker employed by the center works half-time with CUES Schools and coordinates with the Director of Student and Family Support to help meet the needs of our families.
CUES School System partners with Chariots4Hope, a non-profit organization that awards cars that have been donated and restored to eligible low-income families.
Two years ago, All Saints entered into a partnership with Completely Kids to offer an after-school program for students, specifically targeting the large percentage of immigrant and refugee families enrolled at All Saints. These programs relieve the stress on working families of providing care outside of school hours for their children.
Both Holy Name and Sacred Heart have many female students who benefit from after-school programming at Girls Inc. Programming at Girls Inc. builds self-confidence through learning about healthy living/lifestyles, academic enrichment and support, and life-skills instruction.
CUES Schools have many male students who benefit from programming at NorthStar. Programming includes an after school academic support program, but also offers athletics and team sports, as well as a summer camp, Outward Bound School, and a community garden.
In October of 2018 the Hope Center partnered with Holy Name School to provide an after school program open to all students. The program assists with homework completion as well as offering enrichment activities.
