A Place to Be.

The BAY Lincoln is, first and foremost, a gathering place. We knew from the beginning, young people need a place to feel at home; so we made a place for those who needed one. We made a home by restoring an old warehouse in downtown Lincoln, NE; and we named it The BAY Lincoln.

Something to Do.

The BAY Lincoln is a place full of things to do. We strongly believe that for people to be happy and healthy they need something to be apart of. We all need something to do, achieve and explore, especially young people; so we filled our building with opportunities to do just that.

Someone Looking Out.

Lastly, we’ve committed ourselves to protecting and supporting those in our community. We believe that young people have a fundamental need to have someone who cares watching out for them. So, we developed dignifying means of assisting the homeless, exploited and oppressed in our community.

Our Mission Statement

The work at The BAY is centered on creating opportunities for youth to connect them with positive activities, positive adults and the community. The BAY defines its work in terms of building core values, supportive structures and skill sets in youth. The goal of this strength based work is to nurture resilience, shape competencies, teach tangible career skills, encourage independence, form positive support systems and inspire hope for the future.
