Cause Spotlight: Habitat for Humanity of Omaha

Imagine living in an overpriced, cramped, and unsafe rental property. You and your family are constantly threatened with eviction and you ultimately feel trapped in your own home. For many families in Omaha, this is reality. Habitat for Humanity of Omaha works to build new houses and renovate existing homes so families such as these can have a safe and affordable place to live.

“Habitat Omaha builds strength, stability and self-reliance through home ownership,” Meggan Thomas, Development Officer at Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, said. “We have recently launched, with NET grant funding, a Deconstruction Program through our wonderful ReStores.”

Habitat Omaha’s new Deconstruction Program removes salvageable items from homes all over Omaha when homeowners decide to remodel. The donated materials are then sold at Omaha’s Habitat ReStore which raises more money for building affordable homes in the area.

Thomas recently sat down to tell us how Proseeds has helped the wide array of supporters they have. “Here at Habitat Omaha we have supporters of many kinds. We celebrate all the different ways that we are supported in the community and appreciate having another opportunity, like Proseeds, to allow individuals to further our mission in a way that suits them best.”
