Help local families build strength, stability and independence.
Decent shelter is something we all need in order to thrive.
Founded in 1984, Habitat for Humanity of Omaha is a grassroots organization that builds and renovates houses, forges community partnerships and breaks down barriers. We develop vacant lots and eliminate abandoned homes in blighted areas of North and South Omaha while improving the overall appearance of our community. Habitat Omaha homebuyers are required to complete up to 350 hours of sweat equity before purchasing their homes through 20- to 30-year affordable mortgages. Since 1984, Habitat Omaha has partnered with more than 1,800 families and individuals; this year we will impact the lives of more than 200 families in the Omaha area.
In 2020, Habitat Omaha will build or renovate 50 homes. Additionally, we will complete more than 150 home repair or improvement projects, expanding our impact through critical repairs and services for veterans, people with disabilities and the elderly.
