Project Everlast rocks the red carpet


To celebrate Foster Care Awareness Month, Omaha’s Project Everlast council held a star-studded recognition event at the CASA of Douglas County event space.


The evening started with each honoree strutting their stuff on the red carpet, where the “paparazzi” snapped shots of them.




The Lincoln council made the trek to join their Omaha counterparts.

PE staff and volunteers served as waitstaff and kitchen help, serving up chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans.




The meal was topped off with some delicious cupcakes.

The award ceremony was emceed by youth advisors Schalisha Walker and James Bowers.


Young people were recognized for getting new jobs, moving into their own apartments, procuring scholarships and graduating high school.










It was an evening of fun and empowerment, where Project Everlast council members could celebrate one another’s accomplishments and just have some fun together.


Nebraska Children and Families Foundation supports children, young adults and families at risk with the overall goal of giving our state's kids what they need to reach their full potential.
