Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska

Beads in a Box

Posted: Updated:

In August 2004, Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska's need to look for new sources of discretionary funding resulted in the creation of Beads in a Box (BIAB) -- a non-profit, hand-designed jewelry business.  

The BIAB line was created by volunteers with a mission to raise discretionary funding for their community service programs. 

Community Action Partnership of Mid-Nebraska is a non-profit community service agency that assists low-income, elderly, disabled, women, children, parents and single heads-of-households.   Their numerous community service programs help people and change lives that cover 27 counties in south-central Nebraska.

When volunteers couldn't keep up with the demand and the economy took a downturn, BIAB expanded their selection, color choices and price points by adding the Something for Everyone hand-selected, purchased line of jewelry. 

The combination of the hand-designed and hand-selected lines has proven to be successful.  

The BIAB store is portable and travels to special events, conferences and conventions coast to coast. Find them at a variety of stores and a selection may be viewed in their administrative office in Kearney, located at 16 West 11th Street, by appointment only.
