Restoring Dignity Omaha

Restoring Dignity is composed of people in the Omaha community who volunteer their time and resources to help impoverished refugee families. Over the course of a weekend, we go into individual family homes and clean, organize, and bring needed household items. New projects are listed every other month. We assist refugee families in two main areas: (1) teaching basic cleaning skills and providing them with cleaning supplies and (2) bringing these families basic household furniture such as dressers, beds, chairs, and tables. In addition, we also provide basic household items, such as toilet paper, towels, light bulbs, and bed sheets. Everyone can help in some capacity, and we need around 35-45 volunteers per family that we assist. Join us as we aim to restore dignity and hope to the lives of struggling refugee families here in the Omaha area.

Together is a homelessness prevention agency. We provide necessary resources to individuals and families in our community so they can maintain their homes. Volunteers support Together by helping in our pantry. We can host small and medium groups as well support special projects such as building maintenance and donation drives for food, hygiene, kitchen essentials, and house hold items such as plates, cups, small appliances, silverware, and pans. Your support provides hope, dignity, and compassion to those that otherwise would not have it. We can accommodate any number of volunteers and welcome both long-term and one-time service. No special skills required.
