Habitat for Humanity Programs

Homeownership Program:

Habitat for Humanity of Omaha supports our neighbors to achieve strength and stability through homeownership. Through one-on-one coaching, home buyer education classes and post-purchase support, individuals and families get the tools they need to become mortgage ready – whether they purchase a Habitat Omaha house, use Habitat Omaha financing, or purchase and finance through the open market. We build and renovate quality homes that are then sold through affordable 30-year loans. Before purchasing their homes, Habitat Omaha homeowners complete up to 275 hours of sweat equity, working on the build site and in financial literacy and homeownership workshops. Learn more.

Home Repair Programs:

Through Habitat for Humanity of Omaha’s Home Repair Programs, qualified families gain access to a variety of services, from large-scale exterior repairs to smaller-scale energy efficiency upgrades. These programs share the goal of helping families maintain their homes while keeping the community thriving. Explore our different home repair programs.

Neighborhood Revitalization Program:

Habitat Omaha’s Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program is a multi-faceted, block-by-block community development model that unites all our programs with data collection and coalition building for more significant transformation. Within our focus areas, we work to strengthen neighborhood associations, provide referrals to address community needs and bring people together through special events and projects. Learn about Rock the Block.

Blight Removal Program:

Condemned properties hinder economic development and create safety risks for our community. Our Blight Removal Program systematically addresses the issue of blight in our service areas. Through code enforcement reporting, title clearing and demolition of condemned structures, we make room for more opportunities for affordable homeownership. Need more information or have a project? 

Volunteer Program:

Through our Volunteer Program, people from all walks of life come together to build homes and community while breaking down barriers and strengthening neighborhoods. Volunteers help with projects on the construction site, at Habitat ReStore, in the office, during special events and more. Get involved!

Habitat ReStore:

Omaha’s two Habitat ReStore outlets and donation centers sell new and gently used furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances at a fraction of the retail price. The Habitat ReStores sell these items to the general public with the proceeds benefiting Habitat Omaha’s mission. Schedule a donation, shop online, learn about our Deconstruction Program.
