Ways You Can Help

Share the Plate: January 

This month’s recipient is  Restoring Dignity.


Restoring Dignity serves refugee families in the Omaha area. They help with housing advocacy, cleaning education & supplies, home makeovers, furniture and household donations, COVID19 communication, distribution of face masks and hygiene products, information (in multiple languages), and referral to other agencies. Omaha has a very large population of resettled refugees from many different countries and language backgrounds, and the initial services from resettlement agencies do not provide the on-going support needed. Restoring Dignity helps with a focus on education and advocacy. Learn more here: https://rdomaha.org/.

A local opportunity for constructive action: The Carver Legacy Center

As Reverend Shari noted in her Feb. 28 sermon, one of the ways that we can make a positive contribution to our local community is to make a financial investment in North Omaha through the Carver Legacy Center.  This is a black owned financial institution with a focus on building black wealth and creating strong communities.
