Habitat for Humanity of Omaha | About Us
About Habitat Omaha
In 2016 Habitat for Humanity of Omaha will complete up to 45 homes. Homes are built with donor contributions, volunteer labor and donated materials. Families who partner with Habitat Omaha are required to complete up to 350 hours of Sweat Equity by helping on the build site and by attending homeownership workshops. Their monthly mortgage payments are then used to build more homes.
- Habitat Omaha builds new houses and renovates existing homes.
- These houses are modest and affordable.
- Most Habitat Omaha houses are located in neighborhoods east of 72nd Street.
- Our Washington County committee builds a house in Blair, Nebraska.
“A world where everyone has a decent place to live.”
Our Mission Statement
“Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
All Are Welcome
Habitat for Humanity of Omaha has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat Omaha welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion. As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize. This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
