  • Our resettlement experts provide unbeatable care with warmth and expertise for more than 700 individuals each year in Omaha. 

Our clients include individuals from over 75 different countries — including those fleeing war zones, experiencing domestic violence, families seeking asylum, and children who arrived at the US/Mexico border without a parent or guardian.
