The Heartland Family Service One Oak program is a K-8 Level III school approved by the Nebraska Department of Education, for students who are experiencing behavioral, emotional, and/or mental health challenges. Students are referred by local school districts when they are not finding success at their home school.
One Oak features individual, group, crisis sessions, and family therapeutic services facilitated by our experienced, licensed clinicians who use a variety of trauma-informed* and evidence-based* practices to improve a child’s ability to learn and function in an educational setting.
One Oak also offers psychiatric services and medication management to students in need. In addition, One Oak implements individualized academic support so that each student’s educational needs are being met, with the goal of returning to their home school.
Located on our North Omaha Intergenerational Human Services Campus, One Oak is housed in a historical mid-century building with abundant natural light, a centrally located outdoor classroom, gymnasium, outdoor basketball court, playground, and community garden. Our facility also features a game room, library, and mindfulness center to better support our clients’ emotional, occupational, and academic needs.
*Evidence-based practices are scientifically proven effective.
**Trauma-informed care is practicing sensitivity to the effects of trauma in other’s lives.
Eligibility: Students in grades K-8 referred through home school district.
