Dan Gives Back To Habitat for Humanity of Omaha

At Cobalt, we love recognizing the many ways our employees give back to the communities we serve. Our CU Giving Back article this first quarter of 2022 shares Dan’s volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity of Omaha.

Habitat for Humanity of Omaha’s purpose is building new houses and renovating existing houses to provide families quality, affordable homes in the Omaha metropolitan area. Habitat Omaha also operates two retail store locations, called Habitat ReStore, which sells household items at low prices. The net proceeds from store sales are given back to support the purpose of the organization. In addition, Habitat Omaha offers home improvement and repair programs along with being involved in the demolition of blighted homes in distressed areas of the community.

Dan’s work with Habitat began in 2015 when he was on the board of directors for the then Habitat for Humanity of Sarpy County, an affiliate that helped a few families each year. In 2020, the affiliate merged with Habitat Omaha to combine their efforts in giving more families the ability to have access to affordable housing in the greater Omaha area. Everyone at Habitat, from employees to volunteers, are passionate about this mission, which motivates Dan to continue serving.

A notable project Dan was involved with for Habitat was the merger of the Sarpy affiliate with Omaha. While there were many details to work out, it became clear that the change would be advantageous and could help more than a few families in Sarpy County as it previously had been able to help. Being able to utilize Habitat Omaha’s resources resulted in more families in Sarpy County getting homes.

Through Dan’s service on the board, he has seen firsthand how Habitat Omaha is a well-run organization. Dan is especially proud of their progress in building its first few subdivision developments, one in Omaha and one in Bellevue. Each will be able to provide around 80 homes for families. Habitat Omaha has several volunteer opportunities for people with all different skillsets. From building houses to planning events to fundraising, there is something for anyone interested in giving back. Visit Habitat for Humanity for more information.
