A principle tenet of the Through the Eyes of the Child Initiative is that Nebraska’s judges must take an active leadership role in improving the court process in child protection cases. Judges have enormous respect from the community and court stakeholders, as well as great responsibility in the judicial system. Judges have the greatest ability to improve the lives of foster children through systems change and procedural improvements within their courts.
In order to bring about change within the system, the initiative is initiated throughout the State Supreme Court.
Programming is guided by the Supreme Court Commission on Children in the Courts with project leadership from the Through the Eyes of the Child Initiative. Project reports and resources can be found on the Through the Eyes of the Child website.
