What are we all about?

Buffalo County Community Partners, is a county-wide effort located in central Nebraska. Buffalo County Community Partners was one of the first projects of its kind in Nebraska. Community Partners has data assessments or surveys done each year to monitor the health status of the community. They take the results and share them with the community. Community members create coalitions to address the problems and unite resource to create change.
