How You Can Help
Support The Bridge at Cornhusker Place.
For Cornhusker Place to succeed, we must help change lives. That means changing belief systems, attitudes, and behaviors.
Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight or quit smoking understands the challenge. It takes commitment, an ongoing willingness to look closely at seemingly unimportant actions, and the resolve to say, “I can change. I can become someone new.”
When someone gives up a behavior, it’s important to replace it with new ones. For many, finding the discipline to leave destructive behaviors behind happens only with support: the support of our caring professionals, and of family and friends.
You, too, can play an essential role in the process of rebuilding lives. Without direct support, Cornhusker Place cannot function. You can make certain that compassionate and skilled professionals guide the delicate process of helping people leave a life of addiction—and welcome tomorrow as healthy, sober members of our community.
FILLING LIVES WITH HOPE
Everyone believes in the importance of saving a life. So, when a Lincoln
police officer brings an intoxicated person into Cornhusker Place to safely
begin detoxification, we all share relief at knowing this woman won't
freeze, huddled overnight in an alley near an open Dumpster.
At Cornhusker Place, we are honored to know that our services reduce jail
admissions and the resulting tax burden to our community. Because of
Cornhusker Place, admissions to hospital emergency rooms are also reduced.
And we're relieved that, because the doors to Cornhusker Place remain open,
alcohol and other substance abusers aren't driving the streets of Lincoln
with us. We feel safe.
We're glad to know that another client has successfully completed
residential treatment in our short or long-term residential treatment
programs. We're excited to know that they have the skills necessary to lead
a sober life. But each subsequent day is filled with hours and minutes and choices.
It's only through the support our donors provide to Cornhusker Place that we
help every person who enters our facility continue to stay sober. Continue
to make good choices.
Rehabilitation is a process-and the lives saved through continued substance
abuse treatment are as precious to our community as the individual life
You can be sure that tonight, at Cornhusker Place, you have saved another
human being from harm. Better, by tomorrow you will have given him hope.
