The Power of Homeownership
No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life, to feel strong and stable, and to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.
Habitat Omaha supports our neighbors to achieve this strength and independence through homeownership. Every day, we see how quality, affordable housing replaces people’s struggles to keep a sturdy roof over their heads with opportunities to build healthy, prosperous futures. This impact is transformational not just for individuals but for our entire community – fighting poverty, revitalizing neighborhoods, strengthening our economy, and creating stability for the next generation.
We started our work in Omaha in 1984 and expanded to Washington County in 2007, Waterloo in 2014, Burt County in 2016 and Sarpy County in 2020.
“We build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter. “
“A world where everyone has a quality, safe and healthy place to live.”
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.
