About Habitat for Humanity of Omaha
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 houses 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 a 20 to 30 year affordable mortgage.
Since 1984, Habitat Omaha has partnered with more than 1,600 families in our community to help address their housing issues through homeownership, repairs and community building activities.
