Heartland Hope Mission Makes a Difference



“I moved to Omaha to find work. I'm from Indiana and all of my family lives out there.

I am working hard to save money to move back home. A friend that works with me told me about the Mission and I figured that I would stop in.

I work in construction and I am able to care for myself. I just need a little bit of extra help to get by.

Life out here has been a challenge for me, but I am grateful you are here for people like me. Thank you.” – Paul
