The Omaha Nation Community Response Team (ONCRT) is a private, non-profit organization that serves the residents of the Omaha Reservation in Northeastern Nebraska. As a community-based organization, we strive to provide quality prevention, intervention, and community mobilization services and activities, emphasizing the inclusion of Omaha culture as the primary protective factor in bringing about positive changes in the community. The ONCRT works at the grass root level, creating partnerships with tribal programs, the State of Nebraska, local organizations, and community stakeholders concerning a variety of youth issues.
The mission of the ONCRT is to lead our community toward wellness by supporting our youth through traditional and contemporary teachings and modeling, utilizing the highest quality resources available to the Omaha Nation.
It is the vision to the ONCRT that:
Every child will recognize, understand, and take their place in our great tribal Circle.
Every child will make their way across the Four Hills of Life in a sacred manner.
Every child will recognize and focus on their Spirit’s innate strengths, abilities, and potential within.
The ONCRT operates under the belief that it must serve all the youth of the community. The programs and services provided must grounded in and reflect the beliefs, teachings, and traditions of the Omaha Nation.
