Habitat for Humanity Programs
Habitat Omaha helps make homeownership attainable and affordable for first-time home buyers who would have trouble purchasing a home through traditional means. Through the Homeownership Program, families are empowered to become successful homeowners by gaining hands-on construction experience and attending homeownership workshops. They then purchase their home through an affordable Habitat Omaha loan. Learn more about the Homeownership Program now.
Habitat for Humanity of Omaha’s Home Improvement programs partner with qualified families to assist with a variety of projects, from larger-scale exterior repairs to smaller-scale energy efficiency upgrades. Our programs range from grant-funded, no cost options to no-interest loans. The purpose of these programs is to help working families maintain their homes and to keep the community thriving. You do not need to be a Habitat Omaha homeowner to apply for this program. Learn more about our Home Improvement Programs now.
Condemned properties hinder economic development and create safety risks for our community. Project Demolition’s mission is to systematically address the issue of blight in North and South Omaha. Through this program, condemned homes are taken down and the land is used to create more opportunities for affordable homeownership. Learn more about Project Demolition now.
Habitat Omaha’s Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program is a multi-faceted, block-by-block community development model that unites all of our programs (new home construction, renovations, critical home repairs, beautification projects and demolitions) with data collection and coalition building for more significant neighborhood transformation. As building programs are implemented within a focus area, the NR team works to strengthen the neighborhood association, provide referrals to address other community needs and bring people together through special events and beautification projects.
