I have never had a bad experience volunteering with Habitat-Omaha. For the second straight year I am the President of the Habitat-Omaha Young Professionals and over 100s upon 100s of volunteer hours spent with this organization I can honestly say I've enjoyed every minute of it. Our YP group is continuing to grow and new opportunities regularly present themselves. It is a great organization that truly helps the community. A nonprofit where you can actually see the progress and the work that you are doing come to fruition.

I have been active through Young Professionals and as the community service chair for my company for a few years now and the professionalism of Habitat-Omaha is second to none. They are very knowledgeable about Habitat's mission, extremely welcoming and just great people. I will never forget when I did my first Habitat event: I met a Habitat representative that day and didn't see him again for almost 8-9 months, not only did he remember my name but remembered specifics from the conversation we had from months before. That experience made me realize how much they truly care and appreciate the help they get. I will continue to help Habitat for years to come.

I have long appreciated the good work of Habitat for Humanity and the Restore. I work with National, Bellevue and Omaha groups, who all do important work for our country and communities. The Omaha program is vital to the many families who seek a better life. Their investment partnership with Habitat makes for an otherwise unavailable home ownership that means community roots. That more stable home life for the children benefits our entire community. We are blessed to have such caring dedicated people working and volunteering here. Thank you all! Don

Everyone, the staff, other volunteers and homeowners are always friendly and upbeat and it feels good to know we're making a real difference in peoples lives. Working on rehabs; it's a thrill to watch a house go from eyesore to eye-catching. Home dedications are always moving. I could go on and on, there are so many positives to this wonderful organization.

Habitat for Humanity of Omaha and the ReStore has helped families to build and maintain their homes. They provide tremendous resources for working families that enable them to become or remain home owners by supplying them with supportive resources and programming to help them get or stay on their feet. I'm so grateful for their contributions to our community.

I have had the opportunity to volunteer on several Women Build renovation projects. The crew leaders and staff were very organized and used materials very efficiently. It was a pleasure to work with the future home owners and see their pride in helping build a home for their families. Habitat does a great job in improving neighborhoods and enhancing the city of Omaha.

I have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in Omaha several times and every time the staff is very friendly, organized and keeps everyone on task. They offer a variety of events around the city to get people involved and of course have an excellent mission. They are very thorough and efficient in their use of resources and build an impressive number of homes a year through volunteer staff. I am very impressed with their operations and their breadth of services they perform. They aren't just building houses, they are re-building communities. They have a very impressive and comprehensive approach to their work.
