At Heartland Hope Mission, we realize that food insecurity is often a symptom of a larger problem. Our organization provides financial classes, employment resources and community referrals to help our clients rise above poverty and economic crisis.
Homelessness and Hunger Prevention Program
Our Homelessness and Hunger Prevention Program provides assistance in the form of a week’s supply of food, as well as clothing, personal hygiene products and household items to needy individuals and families in the Omaha metropolitan area. All persons completing a request for first-time assistance are eligible to receive services. Screening for other assistance programs is available for applicants.
Heartland Hope Mission invites several businesses that are in high demand of employees to come to our facility and provide employment information for clients. On-site interviews are conducted and assistance with the application process is provided.
At Heartland Hope Mission, we want to ease the burden on families who are struggling to make ends meet. The holidays can add additional stress. Heartland Hope Mission serves Thanksgiving pantries for a few weeks during the month of November and we host Christmas in South in O in December.
Thanksgiving pantries help families with a turkey or ham, all the fixings, and dessert to prepare a Thanksgiving meal.
Christmas in South O
Christmas in South O provides around 1,300 children with new toys for Christmas. Parents or legal guardians register their children ages newborn to 17 during the pantry times in November. Parents and legal guardians will come and shop during one of the tree Christmas in South O dates. They will receive new toys for each child, stocking stuffers, Christmas cookies wrapping paper, and a holiday meal to prepare for Christmas Day.
