The Nebraska Strong Recovery Project has been an outreach program providing community-based counseling and identifying unmet needs during the 2019 flooding disaster, and continuing to the present time, under supervision of Region 4 Behavioral Health Services, based out of Norfolk. As the Nebraska Strong Recovery Project is ending May 17th, here’s to continued progress and resilience in the past year’s recovery as well as the ongoing current Covid-19 response.
This past year outreach workers have been working across the state in counties affected by the 2019 flooding disaster, reaching out door-to-door, networking with various entities in each community, promoting education and activities, and providing a compassionate presence at local events.

Services provided this past year emphasizing self-care and well-being may well continue to be beneficial, as Nebraska now is coping with Covid-19, another type of disaster.
Nebraska Strong team members have appreciated the warm welcomes, impactful conversations, and a great sense of strength and resiliency found in the communities served by outreach work.
As this service draws to a close, a reminder to continue taking care of your physical and mental health, staying strong, knowing that last year’s flooding disaster and our current Covid-19 disaster will eventually be in the past, with brighter horizons to cherish in the future. For further needs or services, you may call the Nebraska Rural Response Hotline at 1-800-464-0258.
STAY NEBRASKA STRONG!!!
