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

What We Do

We provide three core services to Omaha refugees:


We provide resettled refugee families with crucial services such as home-makeovers, relief programs and language access support.


Our family educators go directly into homes and teach critical skills such as home/fire safety, healthy home education and home owners maintenance education classes. All classes are taught in the language the family speaks, by an educator who is from the family’s community.


We provide critical housing advocacy for refugees who are struggling with substandard living conditions.

“By exposing people to more fortunate events, you provide more opportunities for hidden talent to emerge in society.”

-Andrea Rapisarda

Donate Home Items

Up to 2,000 refugees are resettled in Omaha every year. Ensure that they have furniture and household items by dropping off gently used items at the furniture bank, run by our non-profit partner, The Furniture Project. Learn more about how and where to drop off items here!
