To address the need for quality housing in our community, Habitat for Humanity of Omaha builds and renovates homes, repairs existing houses, takes down blighted structures and advocates for better laws and systems. They work with families to help them acquire the access, skills, and financial education necessary to become successful homeowners. Since 1984, Habitat Omaha has partnered with more than 1,600 families in our community to provide affordable homeownership and home improvement opportunities. Habitat Omaha has revitalized properties with very little taxable value, resulting in approximately $524,000 in property taxes paid by Habitat Omaha homeowners in 2018.
Naomi Hattaway, Program Director Habitat for Humanity of Omaha, stopped by the KIOS-FM studios to share with Mike Hogan how the organization assists families, even ones who currently have a home but need help repairing it or ensuring the title and deed are in proper order.
