Reviews for Habitat for Humanity of Omaha

Rating: 5 stars  

I am part of an Organization, Women's Council of Realtors Omaha each year in March we have an Event that benefits Habitat for Humanity. This Event is our largest Fundraising event for the year and we always have Habitat for Humanity Omaha as the Benefactor. We love to give back to the Committee. We have also helped on some of the locations by donating time as well. This is a great help for families in Omaha whose dream was to someday own a home. Habitat for Humanity Omaha is such an awesome group of people and so helpful for making dreams come true. I have attended a Welcome Home and those New Homeowners are SO very Thankful!

Habitat for Humanity of Omaha is a gift to Omaha. The folks here work extra hard and give so much to our city. The impact to the lives of the families they help is so rewarding. I have had the honor of working on a few projects in past years and annually I enjoy the annual fundraiser another organization I am a member of- Women's Council of Realtors, Omaha Chapter- does to raise money for Habitat. It's always a pleasure to give to our local Habitat for Humanity because I know the money is staying here in Omaha and makes a real difference in the lives of people who deserve it!

I have been a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha for 7 years and currently serve on the Board. In the time I have been involved I have seen the organization grow significantly both in terms of the number of families served and the professionalism of the staff. It is one of the most efficiently run non profit organizations that I have ever experienced. Everyone in the organization is dedicated to the mission of serving families. It is a great place to leverage your donations into impact on the community.

I have worked with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha for the last 6 years in a variety of roles (volunteer crew leader, donor, board member) and I have been amazed at the progress this chapter has made in serving the community. They have been able to dramatically grow the number of families served, increased fund raising, improved the professionalism of the staff and transformed neighborhoods. They have gone from a small organization of dedicated volunteers and staff to one of the largest and most successful chapters in the nation. I am very proud of their accomplishments and being able to serve with them.

I am the President of Husker Hammer Siding Windows and Roofing, we have been a major contributor to Habitat for years and continue to do so due to the great organization it is and the great people they have to work with. We are very proud to be tied to Habitat for Humanity and serve the greater Omaha market.

Habitat Omaha is on my annual giving list! I trust that they use my donations wisely to help more families in need. They are working hard to improve struggling neighborhoods and help low-income families. I encourage others to support their important work.

Omaha Door & Window has had nothing but awesome experiences with Habitat for Humanity. We have donated consistently to the Habitat Restore for several years, but most recently we donated a large quantity of siding. There was a lot of material to be transported and Habitat sent a large and very efficient crew to help move the large bundles of siding. They loaded two semi-trailers and multiple box trucks in one day. It was a well-organized effort and Omaha Door & Window enjoyed teaming up with this worthwhile organization. Their commitment and passion to help families in need is inspiring and we look forward to donating in the future.

Our company first started working with Habitat volunteering to transport useable + sale able product between Des Moines and Omaha ReStore locations on our trucking system. Because of what we saw in how the local Habitat organization has grown as a quality alternative for families that would otherwise not have an option for home ownership, we engaged our customer network for their participation by donating excess home building materials to be used in home construction or to help offet building costs keeping home ownership affordable.

By their actions, the entire Habitat Team has shown us their commitment to serving the community and engaging families that are pursuing a second chance in life. Because of this, our personal commitment will continue for the mission Habitat brings to the area.

I have been a donor and volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha since college and can't say enough good things about the organization. I love their strategic approach to developing entire neighborhoods - going well beyond just building homes. The staff, volunteers and families involved in the work are always so friendly and welcoming. Its fun to see people from different backgrounds come together to achieve a common goal. Each time I leave a build site, I feel empowered and inspired. Thank you Habitat!

I have been a Habitat Omaha donor for several years, both financially and items to the ReStore. They are very appreciative of my support and I know they use my gifts wisely. 90% of all resources are spent directly on programs to help more families. I feel valued and appreciated and know that my gifts are making a difference.
