Rooted communities encourage early childhood environments that promote positive social-emotional development, help establish shared statewide priorities and assessment, and strive to make continuous improvements.
Currently at work in three Nebraska communities, Rooted in Relationships is working with key stakeholders to develop systems that prevent mental health issues in early childhood and respond effectively and compassionately to children who need care. Our goal is socially and emotionally health children, reduced stress for families, greater success in school and more positive life outcomes.
