Dave-4298OMAHA, (Neb.) Nebraska Families Collaborative president and CEO, David Newell, CSW, ACSW, has been elected chairperson of the Nebraska Children’s Commission. Newell was reappointed to the board last July by Governor Pete Ricketts.

The Nebraska Children’s Commission was created by the Nebraska State Legislature in 2012 to devise a strategic plan for child welfare and juvenile justice systems and to work collaboratively with the three branches of government and community stakeholders to enhance programs to improve the safety and well-being of Nebraska’s children.

One of the original members appointed to the Commission, Newell said the Commission is focused on working to continue to improve Nebraska’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems and improve the well-being of children and families across the State. Newell plans to visit all commission members across the State in their home communities to listen to their hopes and concerns regarding the commission’s current strategic plan.

“I am humbled to be elected as the Commission’s next chair,” said Newell. “I look forward to partnering with all Nebraskans in furthering the Commission’s important mission of strengthening families and ensuring that Nebraska is a great place for all of our kids to grow-up.”

Newell’s term runs until June 20, 2019.
