BE A HERO
Healthy Housing Omaha reduces the economic and physical impact of substandard housing on families by holistically improving the health and safety of the homes in our community. Our work reduces healthcare costs associated with in-home hazards such as lead, radon, mold and asthma triggers. Our work disrupts home-related health issues that can undermine a family’s ability to work, learn, and thrive. Our programs reduce asthma-related emergency department visits, rescue inhaler usage, elevated blood lead (EBL) levels, and increase positive health behaviors such as smoking cessation and furnace filter replacement frequency. We have the solutions for the disproportionate impacts of pediatric asthma, childhood lead poisoning, and other health issues stemming from poor housing conditions in communities of historic disinvestment. While healthcare providers offer clinical solutions for health issues after diagnosis, we provide the structural solutions by addressing hazards within the home that prevent health issues from occurring in the first place.
Whether you are a student looking to complete a school requirement or just someone wanting
to make a difference,we are always looking for one-time and long-term volunteers to help us fulfill our mission.
