CARF establishes national consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. Stephen Center’s emergency shelter, PSH and HERO programs have all been accredited. We are the only organization in Nebraska that has earned accreditation for emergency shelter.


AT STEPHEN CENTER, we hope that program participants never stop dreaming. Our job is to help the homeless achieve housing, the addicted achieve sobriety, the sick achieve wellness, and the fearful achieve strength . . .

Michael Wehling, Stephen Center Executive Director
