What We Do

Gesu Housing provides hard-working, lower income families the opportunity to purchase their own home. The goal of Gesu Housing is to address poverty and neighborhood decline in North Omaha by turning renters into first-time homebuyers with an affordable mortgage payment as well as in-filling vacant lots with new three-bedroom homes.

After 17 years in this mission, Gesu Housing has determined that families of low or moderate income (80% or below of Median Family Income) can afford a $650 per month house payment (which includes principal, interest, taxes and insurance), covering a first mortgage of $68,000. We have also found that building a quality, Energy Star, long lasting house is a $200,000 per house endeavor. As a result, we are committed to finding partners willing to assist us in filling that funding gap.

Interesting Info

Gesu Housing has sold 52 homes and has 15 homes under construction. Our homes are Energy Certified and accessible when the lot allows that type of construction
After 17 years of putting 52 familes into quality homes, not one family has moved or had a foreclosure.
Every Gesu home has sold immediately after going on the market, making Gesu the only nonprofit housing organization in the city with no standing inventory.
