2012 Build Underway

Neighbors South volunteers began work on building its fourteen house for Omaha Habitat for Humanity, the weekend of June 15-16.

Shortly after mid-day on Friday, June 15, the walls were up and the rafters were being set in place. Take a look:

Now the windows and doors are in and the siding is on. Way to go team!

Coalition of the Year

Neighbors South Coalition was honored at the 18th Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Friday, March 16. We were surprised to learn that Neighbors South was chosen as the Coalition on the year. Congratulations to all who have helped provide simple decent homes for families.

2012 Site Selected

Habitat has selected the site for the 2012 Build for Neighbors South Coalition. A home damaged by fire was torn down on Wednesday, November 23, at 2460 S 19th St. A new home will be built in the summer of 2012 at this site. Plan now to help Neighbors South build a new home for a family in South Omaha.

2011 Build Underway

The 2011 Neighbors South Habitat build is underway. This is the thirteen house this coalition has built. Sixteen volunteers came out for the first day. Here is what it looked like as the day ended.

The second day is well underway with 25 volunteers hard at work. At mid-day, here is the progress.

The work continues each weekend (except July 4th) and we’d love to share in the fun. Come on out!!

Dedication of the 12th Home Built by Neighbors South

A nice group of volunteers and supporters gathered on Sunday, October 3, to welcome Andreya Mayom, Alek Kur and their children into their new home.

Andreya addressed the gathered group expressing his sincere thanks for the work of providing his family a home. He described the home that he grew up in the Sudan. It was made of grass and easily destroyed. “This home will mean that my family will be safe and secure.”
