From volunteering and donating to purchasing homes, shopping at Omaha’s Habitat ReStore and so much more, people partner with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha in a variety of ways. It’s these people who shape Habitat Omaha and help us as we strive to achieve our vision, “a world where everyone has a decent place to live”.

Omaha’s Habitat for Humanity ReStores are discount home improvement outlets that sell new, used, and surplus merchandise. We carry everything from new and gently-used furniture, appliances, plumbing supplies, and cabinets, to flooring, paint, doors, windows, lighting fixtures, and so much more. The inventory is constantly changing, making each visit unique.
Affordable housing is at the core of Habitat for Humanity of Omaha’s mission. In addition to building new homes, we look for houses that can be renovated and sold to first-time homeowners in our city.
At Habitat Omaha, we partner with residents and community leaders to ensure that not only homes—but entire neighborhoods—have what they need to be vibrant and safe places to live. Through our Neighborhood Revitalization Program, we’re helping neighbors transform their communities into inviting places to call home.
