Supportive Housing

OHB’s Supportive Housing Program offers affordable, safe, temporary housing to families and young adults ages 18 to 26. Young adults and families in the program are surrounded by on-site support services to help them advance their careers, achieve their academic goals and develop the necessary skills to lead independent, productive lives.

With the addition of the Supportive Housing Program, for the first time in OHB’s 100-year history, our youth can receive support in every aspect of their lives, including education, housing, therapy and employment, all at one location. Additionally, the Supportive Housing Program meets a critical need for young adults and families who are seeking secure, affordable housing in the Omaha metro while they work on developing necessary self-sufficiency skills.

Helping Youth & Families Reach Their Full Potential

The Supportive Housing Program is designed for young adults and families who are in need of safe, affordable housing and additional support while they develop the skills needed to thrive as responsible community members. The Supportive Housing Program is a true independent living program offering a number of wrap-around services to tenants:
