"Specializing in our Future"

Central Nebraska Youth Services is home to two programs for the youth in Merrick, Nance, Polk, and Hamilton counties - Juvenile Diversion and Truancy Prevention/Intervention.



Central Nebraska Juvenile Diversion serves the youth of these counties by providing a positive alternative to the formal justice system. It strives to teach youth how to make responsible decisions so they can become trustworthy, respectable, and responsible citizens.
Attendance Matters serves the youth and families in these counties by assisting the school districts Merrick, Nance, Polk, and Hamilton counties in resolving attendance issues and ensuring student success. This program strives to uncover issues that may be hindering students on their educational journey.
Together we will work to remedy these issues so each student may have the best possible chance of achieving academic success.
In addition, we are well equipped to provide educational assistance as well as assistance locating many different resources (mental health providers, childcare providers, behavioral health specialists, etc.) close to the counties we serve. Please reach out to us and share with us how we can assist you!
We're committed to specializing in our future and we look forward to working with you!
All our best,
Jordanne McNeff - Program Director/Diversion Coordinator
Kendra Lutz - Assistant Program Director/Truancy Coordinator
