Reviews for Habitat for Humanity of Omaha

Rating: 5 stars  

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

I've volunteered with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha for 4 years and love it! 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.

For several years we have been involved with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha both as donors and volunteers. In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that we have helped provide affordable housing for needy and deserving home owners, we have enjoyed the camaraderie of working with other like-minded people. It is a joy to see how our efforts have made a difference in the lives of families as well as in our larger community.

HFHO is an opportunity... An opportunity to better our community... An opportunity for people to share their skills to build a tangible asset...An opportunity to move into a new/remodeled house to call home... An opportunity to change a neighborhood... An opportunity to recycle your extra construction materials. An opportunity to purchase great construction materials at a reduced cost...Habitat for Humanity Omaha is a well-organized opportunity for everyone!

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.

I have volunteered on several builds for Habitat; sometime with my co-workers and other times on my own. I am impressed with the organization and the homes they build. Even though built by a lot of volunteers, these are quality homes. I like that the future home owners put in their own sweat equity to build that house and that Habitat ensures they have the skills to maintain it throughout the years. On several builds I was fortunate to work with the future home owner and got the opportunity to meet them and their family. While my intent was to spend sometime to bless someone else, I was truly blessed by the entire experience.

I have been involved with Habitat for Humanity for the past 8+ years as a board member from Washington County. Our relationship with Habitat for Humanity Omaha has allow us help 4 families in the Blair Area to ave a home for their family. This opportunity has been such a positive in our community. The volunteers and families that the houses are built for find such a bond throughout the process. Habitat for Humanity Omaha truly is has been a blessing to so many!

I have had the pleasure of being a volunteer with Habitat for the last 10 years. The great people at Habitat have worked with me in finding the best ways for my organization to help at Habitat. This has usually been through providing 10-12 builders from my organization for 3 different days during the year. This flexibility has allowed us to help Habitat, while also allowing us to have the greatest amount of overall participation. Habitat does a great thing for the community and I know that the people that work for me look forward to the build each year. Keep up the great work!
