Better Living Counseling Services, Inc. was started in 1994 as a counseling group working mostly with the mental health needs of individual clients on an out-patient basis. In addition, the company provided Family Support and Supervised Visitation services to families in the Omaha area. A need was recognized for services that didn’t discriminate against clients based upon race, age, and sexual orientation, ability to speak English, education level, and financial status.
The company offered assistance to anyone who was willing to make a change. Within the past few years, Better Living Counseling expanded its service area in order to reach clients in the rural communities in the eastern third of the state. The company now serves nine communities and their surrounding areas. With over 100 employees, the company is able to provide multiple services to nearly 1000 families and individuals each year. The company continues to expand its growth into communities that are in need of quality services. Better Living is well on its way to fulfilling its mission to strengthen and improve current family functioning by cultivating growth and change in order to preserve the family unit throughout Nebraska.
