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 help to grow and maintain the quality, affordable housing stock in Burt County, Omaha, Sarpy County, Washington County and Waterloo while increasing access to homeownership opportunities throughout the area. Habitat Omaha homebuyers are required to complete up to 275 hours of sweat equity before purchasing their homes through a 30-year affordable mortgage. Since 1984, Habitat Omaha has partnered with more than 2,149 families and individuals; this year we will impact the lives of more than 200 families in the Omaha metro area.
