The Nebraska Farm Hotline can be a first stop for information on the resources and services available to farm and ranch families and rural residents throughout the state of Nebraska. The Farm and Ranch Project is housed in the Legal Aid of Nebraska’s Bancroft office. Partners include: Interchurch Ministries of Nebraska, Nebraska Department of Agriculture, Nebraska Farmers Union Foundation, North Central Risk Management Education, Health & Human Services Behavioral Health Division, and the Beginning Farmer Network. Michelle Soll has strong ties and commitment to the farmers/ranchers, their families, and the rural communities. She grew up on a farm, is currently farming with her husband and has worked with many farm programs. Michelle understands the farm system. She takes personal interest in family and generational farming, and has been working with farmers for 31 years - 28 of those years with Legal Aid of Nebraska. Legal Aid of Nebraska has been the home of the Rural Response Hotline from the start up in 1984. The hotline is a statewide organization and has served as a model in starting other hotlines in other states.
