WHO WE ARE
Restoring Dignity is composed of passionate and dedicated humans who are committed to bringing lasting change and hope to local refugees. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit located in Omaha, Nebraska, who actively advocate for the human dignity of our refugee population by providing critical resources that both relieve suffering and enable resettled families to thrive in their new environments. Everything that we do stems from our belief that someone needs to see the needs of refugees in our community and then something needs to be done. Restoring Dignity began in July 2012, after the tragic death of a young South Sudanese refugee woman spurred community members to begin providing resources to refugee families. What began as a one-time event to help her family soon turned into an organization that has grown exponentially over the past 11 years. To date, Restoring Dignity has served tens of thousands of refugees in the Omaha, Nebraska area, by providing them with in-home education and much-needed household items. Our specialty is bringing the community of Omaha together to serve the needs of the many refugee families who now call Omaha home.
