Safe2Help is bigger than Millard. It's run by our trusted partners at Boys Town, and it is a group effort with the Omaha Police, Douglas County, several other organizations and metro schools. We are very glad to be able to share this resource with our community.

Eventually the Safe2Help hotline will replace the Safe Schools Hotline. The Safe Schools Hotline will continue to be available throughout this school year as well.
