Below you will find updates on our facilities, specialized services, and what our team is doing to unite, grow and lead in the Omaha community.
Personal Protective Equipment Needed
Both CRCC centers are now open for families to resume our care. As we continue to maintain a safe and clean environment for our children, we are in need of more Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). We are reaching out to friends and families of CRCC to help our organization continue providing unmatched services by donating PPE today. This can be done by a direct donation or the purchase of an item from our wishlist.
Items in need:
The CRCC team is committed to keeping our facilities as clean as possible while operating with extreme caution. That means constantly wiping surfaces, and the requirement of all-day masks and wearing of gloves. We believe we can never be too safe, especially when caring for vulnerable children.
Please consider donating to our PPE fund so we can keep bringing joy, hope and health to our CRCC families.
CRCC Fever Policy
The following policy is used to determine when a client with a fever needs to go home, stay home, or is eligible to return to CRCC. This policy is implemented by all CRCC staff.
-Any child with a temperature greater than 100 degrees may not attend CRCC.
-If a child develops a fever while in our care, the client’s guardian will be notified and the client will need to be picked up within 60 minutes of the phone call. This child will be isolated away from other staff and clients until the parent has picked up the child.
-If a child is prescribed antibiotics, they may return to the center 24 hours after the start of antibiotics.
-If a child appears to be ill, and is without a fever, it is at the nurse’s discretion whether or not the child may attend CRCC at that time.
-Children with a fever may return to CRCC when they remain fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication, AND with a doctor’s note stating the child may to return to center, OR if the child remains fever-free for 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication
Both our Northwest and Southwest locations are now open. Our staff members are committed to keeping our facilities squeaky clean, and we are still operating with extreme caution, despite restrictions being recently loosened by our governor. That means constant wiping down of surfaces, all-day masks for our staff and wearing gloves. We believe we can never be too safe, especially when caring for vulnerable children. If you are interested in reserving care for your child please contact our Admissions Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CRCC’s Learning Together at Home curriculum is now open to the Omaha community and beyond. This curriculum includes a kit that contains a schedule for 30+ days of activities, supplies to complete those activities, and access to educational video content for daily guidance.

We will be offering 2020 summer camp if there is enough interest from clients and families in the community. Some summer camp activities may result in becoming virtual. Our camps are open to children school age to transition ages. We are reaching out to all CRCC families about summer camp. If you do not receive a call, please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com.
CRCC is now providing Telehealth Therapy services to our families and the Omaha community. Telehealth is a great advantage to our children and their families, and we will continue this service even after both centers reopen. We are offering OT, PT, SLP, and Behavioral Health via Telehealth services. For more information on our Telehealth services, click here!
Omaha Gives is a day for our community to come together for 24 hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the metro area. We had a record breaking year, raising $63,511. Thank you for investing in our mission to provide joy, hope, and health to our clients everyday.
Unfortunately, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 we canceled our Moonbeams & Big Dreams 30th anniversary gala, scheduled for May 9. Stay tuned as we work through the details and set a new date to recognize our 30+ incredible years.
Please follow CDC guidelines to help prevent your child from contracting the virus, monitor your child for possible COVID-19 symptoms and follow CDC recommended protocol if you suspect your child is ill.
