Community Health Partnership of Nemaha County is a community-led, grant-funded organization that promotes lifestyle healthy choices through education and awareness.
As a community coalition, we feel it is our priority to keep prevention, as well as the overall wellness of Nemaha County, at the forefront of our efforts. Being a Drug-Free Communities (DFC) grantee means that one of our main priorities is reducing risky behaviors in youth ages 8-18. Therefore, we focus on educating Nemaha County youth on healthy decision-making habits through the programs that we offer, as well as providing valuable prevention-based resources to the community.
Educating the community on identified risk factors related to health is another CHP goal. We pride ourselves on our partnerships with other community entities such as Southeast District Health Department, Nemaha County Hospital, Nemaha County Sheriff’s Department, Auburn Public Schools, Johnson-Brock Public Schools, as well as many local organizations and businesses.

Part-Time Youth Coordinator
Kathy Jacobitz, her husband Jed, and their 6 children, reside in rural Stella. A native of Lincoln, NE, having graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University with degrees in both History and Education, she initially had her sights set on big cities. After meeting her husband, who had a desire to work and raise children on the family farm, deep in the heart of southeast Nebraska, she shifted gears. After many life lessons and a great deal of personal growth, she fell in love with the people in her community and counts them dear friends 16 years later. Having been a public school teacher, a social case worker, a stay at home mom, a homeschooling mother, a public schooling mom, a MOPS leader, a birth advocate and a transplant, her heart for her community knows no bounds. Kathy is excited and profoundly honored to be on board with Community Health Partnership of Nemaha County.
