In the News

The Christ Child Society strives to support people of all faiths and backgrounds through programs that serve children and families in need. This is what we did in 2023, supplying baby essentials to moms and newborns, and providing significant scholarships to single parents, giving hope to families in our community.

We are grateful for this partnership with Skutt Catholic High School and the work their volunteers have accomplished.

Although the founder of The Christ Child Society, Mary Virginia Merrick, never married or had children of her own she set a worthy example of being alongside mothers to nurture their families.

We are proud to introduce our three newest board members and share a little bit about them with you.

Currently, we serve approximately 60 expecting or new mothers from a diverse range of backgrounds through our Child & Maternal Health program called Promotion of Mother’s Care (PROMOCARE).

When Nebraska Early Development Network reached out regarding a family in need, Christ Child Omaha was able to answer the call!

On a crisp fall afternoon, Christ Child Society of Omaha, in conjunction with Catholic Charities, provided 30 new car seats to mothers in need.

The 2023 Christ Child Society’s annual Soirée was marked by tremendous camaraderie and generosity in support of women and families. Over 180 guests enjoyed a social hour and then moved into the beautifully decorated ballroom of Happy Hollow Club to enjoy a delicious dinner and inspirational program.

2022 Annual Report - Christ Child Society of Omaha

Christ Child Omaha is proud to partner with area schools to bring Christ’s love to communities through the layette program. Mary Our Queen Catholic School, Skutt Catholic High School and St. Margaret Mary's assembled and delivered backpack-style layettes with newborn necessities, spreading our mission to families in Omaha, Lincoln, Fremont and Council Bluffs.

Elliot Peck received one of our scholarships during a stressful time in her life. She was able to pay for books, supplies, and tuition — so she could stay on track with her education during her senior year at Nebraska Methodist College. She is one of 70 people who have benefited from Christ Child Society Scholarships since 2019. Currently, 34 are on scholarship, the vast majority single mothers. Scholarships are $5,000 a year (four-year degrees) and $2,500 (two-year degrees).

Ses Amies has 23 members and recruitment is open for this vibrant new auxiliary. The group is family friendly and young children are welcome, while you volunteer. It's a great way to have fun making connections and making an impactful difference.

To bolster reading skills, Christ Child Omaha kicked off a pilot literacy program with brightly colored vending machine filled with books at Westgate Elementary School. Students can earn shiny gold tokens to “purchase” a book. 

Fun, fellowship, and raising funds! Over 150 guests filled the bays at TopGolf from 6-9:00 pm on April 12th for Christ Child Society of Omaha’s first TopGolf FUNdraising event.
