Adult Parole Administration keeps records of community service
providers that provide services to parolees across the state. This
information is reviewed annually. Although we try to maintain accurate
and reliable information, we can not guarantee all information in this
summary to be totally accurate. We suggest anyone interested in service
delivery by a provider, contact that provider to determine if the service
provider information is correct.

The Omaha District Community Resource Summary was updated by requesting
each Parole Officer, who covers or works within that territory to verify the
correct business, phone number and address, and to evaluate their continual use
as a referral source. This Summary covers the Omaha, Fremont, Norfolk,
Columbus and surrounding areas for the Omaha District.

Any previous Agencies that are no longer used by the Omaha, Fremont, Norfolk,
Columbus and surrounding areas were deleted. Any new Resources were added
to this Summary.

If, as a user of this summary, you become aware of a resource that is not listed,
please contact the Omaha District Parole Office so that the resource can be
evaluated and added to this document, as appropriate. Thank you for assisting
Adult Parole Administration in keeping this document accurate.
