Habitat Omaha brightened the lives of 159 families in 2013 through the construction of new and renovated homes, critical and minor repairs and beautification projects.   Neighborhoods were transformed as 39 condemned homes were demolished to make way for new homes in the future.   9000 volunteers made this progress possible.  Habitat Omaha demolished their 100th house recently.  In time, new homes will be constructed on these lots, transforming neighborhoods.  Northeast Omaha is getting a new look!    Since 1994 Faithful Builders have built or renovated 22 homes.   Thank you for helping 22 low income families move into decent, affordable homes in safe neighborhoods.  Thank you for helping revitalize North and South Omaha.   Take a drive through these neighborhoods.   The transformation is amazing.

If you're looking for affordable building supplies, check the inventory at the Habitat ReStore at 108th and Bedford.   They have a large selection of tile and plumbing fixtures, in addition to home furniture and décor.   Their inventory changes daily, so stop by often.   This also is a good place to donate those extras from your home improvement projects, cabinets, appliances, etc.   Habitat saves these items from the landfill and turns them into profits to fund additional Habitat homes.  The ReStore has a new program called "Deconstruct".   If you are planning a remodel and want to donate your old cabinets, etc., call Kristin Ashley at 402-884-6997.  They will schedule an experienced team to come into your home and remove the donated pieces.   Thank you for your continued support. The ReStore has made over a million dollars this year, funding about 8 homes!

How can you assist?

1.  Make a cash donation.
2.  Volunteer to help build.
3.  Donate building, plumbing, electrical supplies or a furnace.  In-kind donations decrease the amount of cash needed.
4.  Provide and/or deliver food to the workers.
6.  Pray! Please pray for the family, for the safety of volunteers, for sufficient funds to build the home and for favorable building weather.
7.  Support the Habitat ReStore.  Habitat's RESTORE is AT 108TH AND MAPLE!       Any building material or home improvement related items are acceptable, as long as they are in good condition.  The first ReStore is located at 1003 S. 24th St. and is filled with donated new and used home improvement supplies, furniture and appliances.  Useful items are kept out of the landfill, buyers get a great deal and Habitat for Humanity of Omaha uses the profits to build more homes.  Call the ReStore at 934-1033 to be put on their “Specials” email list.

Homeownership gives families a sense of safety and stability.  Children do better in school and are more confident.  You have the power to make a difference. Please prayerfully consider making a cash or in-kind donation to help write another success story.  All Habitat families appreciate your generosity.  Thank you.
