A look back at 2020

COVID-19 brought the importance of home — of having a safe, healthy and affordable place to live – to the forefront. For many, “shelter in place” only exacerbated the conditions with which they have struggled for so long. Since 1984, Habitat Omaha has helped families and individuals in our community build and improve places to call home, because we believe in the strength and stability it provides — now as much as ever.

As we take a look back at all we accomplished in 2020, we are reminded of the partnerships that made it possible. Watching individuals and organizations step up, despite growing uncertainty of their own, was inspiring. Join us in celebrating a few bright spots from a year we never could have expected.
