Omaha, NE – Omaha is working with its first sister city to support Japan following that country's earthquake and tsunami.
The Omaha Sister Cities Association and Shizuoka, Japan, are raising funds for the relief efforts. Joe Arbona of the Sister Cities Coordinating Council says Shizuoka didn't see the destruction that other parts of Japan experienced, although the city did experience a magnitude 6.5 earthquake last week.
Omaha, NE – A new program seeks to provide educational, medical, and family-centered therapy services to young children of drug-addicted parents.
Project Safe Start began last week in the Douglas County drug courts in Omaha. It'll be expanded to the Lancaster County drug courts as well. Project co-director Vicky Weisz says Safe Start uses family-centered therapy to help parents going through the drug courts connect with their young children.
