Habitat for Humanity in Sarpy County
Habitat for Humanity has been helping to build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter in Sarpy County since 1994. By partnering with first-time homeowners, members of the faith community, local businesses, and neighbors who believe in our vision—a world where everyone has a decent place to live—we are able to expand access to homeownership in our area.
In July 2020, Habitat Sarpy County and Habitat Omaha united under the name “Habitat for Humanity of Omaha” to build opportunity by further expanding access to homeownership, home improvement resources, and financial planning and homeowner readiness programs throughout Burt, Douglas, Sarpy, and Washington counties.
Through this partnership, we have combined the infrastructure, resources and dedicated volunteers and advocates from both organizations to better serve our community.
Due to COVID-19, we have very limited volunteer opportunities available at this time.
Habitat is about more than swinging a hammer—though that’s important too! We rely on the dedication and generosity of our volunteers to further our mission. In order to expand access to quality homeownership opportunities that families can afford, we have a wide variety of opportunities available for volunteers from all walks of life. Learn more about how you can volunteer now.
Faith Partner Opportunities
Faith partners are the cornerstone of Habitat Omaha’s ministry to end poverty housing. From Faith Coalitions coming together to sponsor and build homes, to Prayer Partners who help lift up our mission, there are many ways to serve. If your congregation or faith organization of any religion or denomination is interested in finding out more about partnership opportunities with Habitat Omaha, please contact Brian Osborne at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-457-5657 x 2154.
Corporate Partnership Opportunities
It takes financial and volunteer support to build homes. Your company can partner with Habitat Omaha to support our work in Sarpy County and the surrounding area in a variety of ways. From sponsoring an event, making a corporate contribution, signing up for a Team Build Day and more—you and your company can make a lasting impact in our community. To learn more about how you can get involved, contact Becky Vinton at email@example.com or 402-884-2499.
Home Improvement Opportunities
Through Habitat Omaha’s Home Improvement Programs, we 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 these programs. Learn more about our Home Improvement Programs now.
Habitat Omaha helps make homeownership attainable and affordable for first-time home buyers who may not be able to purchase a home through traditional means. Through the Homeownership Program, individuals and families are empowered to become successful homeowners by gaining hands-on construction experience and attending financial and homeownership workshops. They then purchase their home through an affordable Habitat Omaha loan.
As we are in the processes of building a new Sarpy County Homeownership Program, we will not be accepting applications for this area in 2020. We plan to have more information about Sarpy County homeownership opportunities in early 2021. If you are interested in applying for homeownership in Omaha, our next application session will open in early 2021 as well. Learn more more about homeownership in Omaha now.
