Historically, our non-profit corporation began in June 1996 under the name of Christmas in April Omaha. From the modest beginnings of that year, with a budget of $5,000, we helped 5 families needing home repairs to simply live in a safe home. In the succeeding 18 years, we have helped 1,930 families on a combined budget of over $2,094,033.

In 2002 we changed our corporate name to Rebuilding Together Omaha to more closely align with our true mission and vision.

As we have grown we have added solid programming including a year around emergency repair program, a year around home modification program for disabled homeowners, an annual Rebuilding Day volunteer program, and a Raise the Roof repair and replacement program.

We have a wonderful Board of Directors and Staff that is working well together to improve operations, fundraising, and interaction with our clients. We are active on Facebook, Instagram and twitter, please follow and friend us so you can stay up to date on our work and our needs.
