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.

Habitat for Humanity Omaha has been an outstanding community partner to assist with addressing our abandoned properties crisis in the metro-area. I couldn't imagine my community without their proactive leadership in making housing affordable.

Habitat Omaha has been a great partner to work with. Whether it is their hospitality for our community meetings, collaborating on strategies to ensure affordable housing for all in the Omaha metro area, or serving on leadership committees, Habitat can always be counted on.
Additionally, the local office philosophy of asset based neighborhood development has made an impact on the way our region looks at community development (lifting up what works, and looking for strengths in the existing community)
Oh, and the Habitat ReStore has helped me personally to find items to rehab my house at a fraction of what I'd have to pay elsewhere!

I shop at the ReStore and I love it! You never know what great items you will find and the best part is they are well below the retail price. I save lots of money while helping a great cause. I know that money from the ReStore helps to build more houses. It's a win win.
