NABHO Lobby Day and LB327 Support
Julia Hebenstreit | Executive Director, The Kim Foundation

It was so inspiring to see more than 60 people come together at the Capitol on March 14th for the Nebraska Association of Behavioral Health Organization’s Lobby Day, despite the horrific flooding and extreme weather that faced our state that day and continues to do so.
