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 eliminate vacant lots and abandoned homes in the blighted areas of North and South Omaha while improving the overall appearance of our community. Families in our Homeownership Program are required to complete up to 350 hours of sweat equity before purchasing their homes through 20 or 30-year affordable mortgages.
Since 1984, Habitat Omaha has partnered with more than 1,425 families in our community to help address their housing issues through homeownership, repairs and community building activities.
