EBUILDING TOGETHER OMAHA Together we transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing our communities.
N JUNE 1996, Christmas in April Omaha began with a modest $5,000 budget with which five families in dire need of house repairs could safely remain in their homes. Since that time, the name has changed to Rebuilding Together Omaha and year-round services are now offered to meet the growing need of low-income seniors with free home repairs.
GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: • One time, recurring or pledge • Planned giving • Corporate partners - Investing in Rebuilding Together Omaha changes lives for low-income homeowners living in unsafe and unhealthy homes
PROGRAMS: • Healthy at Home: A program that allows homeowners to stay in their homes by providing critical plumbing and electrical repairs, roof replacement and other renovations requiring immediate attention. • Home Modification: The program is designed to allow homeowners with disabilities to remain in their homes and prevent unnecessary institutionalization by providing home modifications intended to increase independence, safety and security. • Powering Hope: Rebuilding Together Omaha and IBEW Local 22 partner twice a year to provide free electrical repairs for seniors in our community.
