I paid way too much for my house. House is filled with lead dust. I can't use my yard to garden. Lead dust causes severe health issues and is very dangerous. I also have all types of mold in my house. Mold is also a huge health concern and very dangerous to live in those conditions. We won't even mention the idiot neighbors I have to deal with and all the 60 some police reports i have had to make. Company refuses to fix the things wrong with my house & thinks they can offer me a couple thousand dollars for my house and let someone else have it & all the problems that come with it. Wiring is faulty inside and outside of house. I have been sick and my pets sick too since living here. All my money goes to house payment and fixing things. I complained on Facebook and Habitat had my account shut down. So now I am going to complain on every site they have. I had that Facebook account for years & since Habitat can't accept the problems they try and hide them. Well problems are not going to just go away until you fix them and company refuses to do anything I ask, they can't even bring me some dirt to put around my house, so the water will stop leaking inside my house. I will add my you tube videos and photos later on.
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.
A great organization that furthers affordable housing in our community!
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.
As a donor, volunteer, and construction partner with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, I can attest to the hard work, dedication, and overall professionalism that Habitat for Humanity operates under while transforming neighborhoods and our community. I am proud to be involved with Habitat. Their leadership is passionate, mission driven, and energetic about everything they do. Omaha is lucky to have such a great organization in our community.
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.

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.
