The Arc of Omaha’s mission is to improve & enrich the lives of people with developmental disabilities and to provide information, education, and support to their families. Volunteer opportunities include: assisting with child care (for children with and without disabilities), serving dinner to our adult participants, coaching a basketball team, doing arts and crafts with children, teaching educational classes and socializing. Contact Lisa to receive a monthly notice regarding upcoming volunteer opportunities. Best Buddies Colleges, a program for college students, pairs people with intellectual disabilities in one-on-one friendships with college students (aka College Buddies). College Buddies & their Buddies must meet 2 times per month – one activity is individual; the other is a large group event. The pair also makes weekly telephone or email contact. Contact Theresa Maloney for more information.
