What We Do

Restoring Dignity is bringing lasting change and hope to local refugees. At the heart of our belief that something can and should be done to meet the needs of Omaha’s refugee community through empowerment, education, and advocacy partnerships.

We bring families household furniture such as dressers, beds, chairs, and tables. In addition, we also provide household items, such as toilet paper, towels, light bulbs, and bed sheets. Over the course of one day, we transform a selected family’s home into a fully functioning living environment where they are able to thrive.

We teach families basic cleaning skills and provide them with cleaning supplies.

We provide critical housing advocacy by helping refugees submit maintenance work orders and report slumlords.

Interesting Info

We have served close to 2,000 refugees in Omaha since we were founded in 2012.
Only 1% of displaced people worldwide get resettled in another country. The other 99% remain displaced.
We hope to strengthen our ability to make adjustment much easier for refugees here in Omaha.
