Habitat for Humanity of Omaha

About Habitat for Humanity of Omaha

Mission:"Building homes and building lives through the partnership of our community's spiritual and material resources."

Omaha Habitat For Humanity builds houses in partnership with low-income families in need of decent, affordable and safe housing and in turn strengthens impoverished neighborhoods in our community. Families who are accepted into the program help build the homes and go through an extensive homeownership education series which includes workshops on insurance/escrow, legal issues, financial budgeting, predatory mortgage lenders, home repair, home maintenance, yard care, and community development.

Upon completion of their 350 sweat equity hours and the education program, families buy the home at a zero-interest mortgage. Money received for mortgage payments is then filtered back into the program and helps build more houses.
