Who We Are

Mission & History

Panhandle Partnership, Inc. is a non-profit, membership-based organization serving the eleven counties of the Panhandle. Since 1998, Panhandle Partnership has served as a catalyst for collaboration in the development of creative opportunities for enhancing sustaining family and community life in Western Nebraska.

Panhandle Partnership does not provide services. Rather we bring people from diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and sectors together to assess, plan, implement and evaluate systems, policies, practices, and programs which strengthen communities and increase protective factors for communities in the Panhandle.


Collective Impact for Thriving and Equitable Panhandle Communities.


We build collaboration among agencies, networks and the broader community to find creative solutions to improve the quality of life of people and communities in the Panhandle.

Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge that we gather on the ancestral and unceded lands of the Seven Council Fires and the land of our Cheyenne relatives, the original caretakers of this water & land.  We honor and pay respect to our relatives and their Elders – past, present, and emerging.  We also honor and pay respect to our Arapaho and Pawnee relatives in acknowledgment of the neighboring lands in which many of us live and work.
