Our volunteers are a vital part of our success at The Kim Foundation. Volunteering can be a positive way to not only give back to the community, but to also improve your own mental health. Volunteering has many benefits for both the mind and body. Volunteering can help to build new relationships, increase self-confidence, improve mental and physical health, provide new experiences, and also offer a fun and exciting opportunity.
Get involved and stay informed about what The Kim Foundation is doing in the community by staying connected with us. Each month The Kim Foundation sends out an email newsletter which provides information focused on mental health. The newsletter is a source for learning about what The Kim Foundation is doing, as well as staying informed about resources and events in the community.

The Omaha community is fortunate to have such a philanthropic community that focuses on bettering the lives of those living here. More and more focus is being placed on behavioral health and overlapping priorities due to increased understanding that physical and mental health are equally important and that so many people from all walks of life experience some form of mental illness either directly or through someone they love.
The goal of this collaborative initiative is to create a safe, supportive, and engaging community throughout Omaha where all people – young and old – can flourish. Working to educate people on what trauma truly is and the importance of dealing with this on a community-wide level is at the root of this effort. Trauma is unique to each individual experiencing it, and we as a community must devote a sustained effort to creating a community that views every situation through a trauma-informed lens.
There are a number of bills on both the state and federal levels introduced each year that impact behavioral health. The Kim Foundation will continue to prioritize our advocacy work and support sound legislation that positively impacts Nebraskans. Much of our legislative work stems from our membership through the Nebraska Association of Behavioral Health Organizations and the National Council for Behavioral Health. Watch for more information on relevant bills that we support, as well as other ways that you can get involved in advocacy efforts.
