Abiding in Neighborhoods
Our key distinctive: We have purchased and rehabilitated homes in North Omaha, and we have partnered with local leaders already living in the community. These “Lighthouse” Leaders live in North Omaha and are tasked with community-building and beautification initiatives.
A cleaner neighborhood is a safer neighborhood. Partner organizations, businesses, and churches bring teams to the inner-city to serve our neighbors.
Despite having a reputation for being the most violent part of our city, a recent study from the University of Nebraska at Omaha shows crime drops approximately 70% in the areas surrounding our Lighthouses.
Under-resourced neighborhoods experience higher housing turnover and crime. Through community-building events and Lighthouse Leader relationships, neighbors get to know each other, increasing a sense of neighborhood unity and pride.
