Join us in Supporitng Notre Dame Housing serving local seniors!

Notre Dame Housing (NDH) has been serving low-to-moderate-income seniors on 35th and State Streets since 1996. The NDH campus consists of  approximately 107 apartments for those using tax credits or Housing and Urban Development (HUD) assistance. Our Senior Center, based in North Omaha, offers support to 125 individuals with a low-to-moderate income. We provide a much-needed support network to those in need in the area. The property is well-known for its welcoming reputation and well-maintained campus. More than 70% of our seniors live below the Federal Poverty Level and struggle to meet basic needs, living on less than $1,000 per month. Residents pay over 40%-50% of their income in rent, leaving just a few dollars a day to pay for food, medication, transportation, and other basic need expenses.  NDH is proud to offer studio, and 1 and 2 - bedroom apartments which include laundry and WiFi access, starting at roughly $500 per month, well below the city average.

We provide senior care at NDH that is not simply a place to live, but a community in which to thrive, give back, and receive robust holistic care. We rely on coordinated programming from dozens of community partners and employ on-site service and life enrichment coordinators for individualized assistance. This approach is a radically different way to think about housing, health, and eradicating senior poverty with not only dignity, but grace and hope.

With your partnership, we can serve more seniors through our unique approach of service coordination, public programming, and an expanded food pantry. When you choose to support Notre Dame Housing, you are strengthening the circle of support we have built for North Omaha's seniors. You are contributing to the fight against senior isolation and food insecurity. You keep our work growing and changing with the needs of modern seniors.
