Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance is a nonprofit organization that works to create a Healthy Home for every child. Our main goal is to bring awareness and education to families in the city about environmental hazards, green and Healthy Homes, and lead poisoning. We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help us accomplish our goal of creating Healthy Homes for every child in Omaha and beyond.

Volunteers with OHKA can:

1. Host a Healthy Home House Party: This is a great way for you to have some fun with your friends, learn about Healthy Homes and help support an incredible cause. At the party, our staff can help you make green cleaning supplies and natural home improvement remedies, teach you and your friends about Healthy Homes and our work, and you can adopt one of our families to help them make their home safer and healthier.

2. Do a Healthy Home Clean-Out: Once a month, we need volunteers to help us clean out a basement, clear out a living space, clean up a backyard or organize a living area for one of our families. We provide the supplies including haz-mat suits (when needed), gloves, dumpsters and cleaning equipment. Volunteer Clean-Out days usually occur on a Saturday morning for 2-3 hours.

3. Volunteer for Rundee: Rundee is our annual 5K run that is a fundraiser and awareness builder for OHKA. Volunteers help manage the course, staff the stations and cheer on the runners and walkers.

4. Help OHKA in the office: We are always in need of help to organize our supplies, manage the front desk, edit grants, or serve on a committee. Let us know what you’re good at and we will try to make it work!
