Schools

The majority of young men served by NorthStar reside in two North Omaha zip codes with the highest concentration of families living in poverty in Douglas County: 68104 and 68111.

In the 2019-2020 school year, utilizing both organization-owned and contracted bus services, NorthStar provided transportation from 23 schools every day after school. NorthStar is currently working with local school districts to determine transportation options for the 2020-2021 school year.
