I am the Executive Director of another Habitat affiliate outside Chicago. Omaha HFH has exceptional leadership, and has served as an innovator in the field of community development.

I served as an AmeriCorps member with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha for 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Habitat's staff members were very supportive and the environment felt like a family. I was impressed by the trust the staff had in me as a recent college graduate with little experience. While they provided guidance they gave me the room to develop the position. Thank you for a wonderful two years!

Habitat for Humanity Omaha is a true leader among Habitat for Humanity affiliates nationwide. As a leader of another Habitat for Humanity affiliate, I often look to Habitat Omaha's programs and practices as models and examples of best practice. Amanda Brewer, their executive leader serves in a national advisory role to Habitat for Humanity International giving strong advice from practical local experience. Their program is innovative and well balanced with great thought given toward sustainability of programs.

Habitat Omaha appreciates all feedback from our volunteers. In fact we solicit it each time a person volunteers with our organization. In the spirit of full disclosure, Zach H. was not a volunteer but is a former Habitat Omaha employee. We wish him the best.

While volunteering with Habitat, in Omaha, I got to know several of their employees. After a year, I could no longer work there as I watched 1 manager, and 2 Supervisors get fired for disagreeing with the management, mainly because of being overworked and under prepared. At the same time I observed as there were under performing staff, who were allowed to stay because they were "minorities". (Another direct quote from an HR Manager).

Their volunteer management was a complete mess, with groups showing up to the wrong sites at wrong times, and many sites not being ready for the number of people. I observed as some volunteer groups treated the staff poorly, and continued to work on sites because they were "large donors" (a direct quote from a Habitat Manager).

Overall, I was very disappointed with a local group doing such a dis-service to an organization that has such a large and respectable name. I have several friends, and families of those mis-treated and even fired by this organization (over primarily political issues) that will never donate, volunteer, and who have little good to say, especially about their upper management.
