After 60 years and 4 generations, Eyman Plumbing Heating & Air wants to thank the community for their business by trying a unique offer:*
After some serious head-scratching, we decided in order to deliver these donations efficiently to charity every month, we should find 5 worthwhile organizations serving a wide range of needs in our community. While there are more worthwhile organizations making a difference than we could count, we settled on these five:
• Children’s Hospital & Medical Center
• Nebraska Humane Society
• Omaha Home For Boys
• Rebuild Together
• Stephens Center
At Eyman we always appreciate your business and the wonderful community we call home. Thanks!
Here’s more information on each:
“So that all children may have a better chance to live…” Children’ s Hospital & Medial Center delivers extraordinary care to children, educates health care professionals and promotes pediatric research.

Last year, nearly 30,000 animals found their way to the Nebraska Humane Society. Some were lost, some were injured, some were simply no longer wanted. All were frightened and confused. The animals need your help. Gifts you make today help us provide critical services to the animals left behind in our community. www.nehumanesociety.org

Founded as an orphanage for boys in 1920, today the Omaha Home for Boys achieves its mission through a continuum of three programs. Our programming provides care, guidance and skills building to approximately 400 male and female youth annually while simultaneously supporting the family system. Approximately two-thirds of those we serve are from the Omaha area and the remainder is from communities across Nebraska. Inspiration Hill Residential Care Program provides individual behavioral-based intervention in family-style settings to boys, ages 12-18, on our main campus at 52nd and Ames streets. Jacobs’ Place Transitional Living Program provides temporary housing, life-skills training, employment readiness guidance and educational support for approximately seven-months to 17-20 year old men and women in crisis. Branching Out® Independent Living Program annually provides training and resource linkages to more than 200 young women and men ages 14-24 living independently in the community. The Omaha Home for Boys supplements core programming with supportive services that include our Wurdeman Education Center, a state of the art recreation facility, and Cooper Farm featuring one of the state’s oldest 4-H Clubs.
To bring volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income elderly or disabled homeowners through property repairs and modifications at no cost.
Rebuilding Together Omaha addresses home repair and modification needs of the low-income elderly and disabled homeowners living at or below 50 % AMI in Douglas, Pottawattamie and Sarpy Counties in Nebraska through four programs:
1) Rebuilding Day – Teams of volunteers join together on the last Saturday in April to repair and restore 25 houses in 2013-14, making a lasting impression on the families and individuals who are helped. Rebuilding Day is at the cornerstone of Rebuilding Together Omaha’s mission to preserve affordable homeownership, while impacting communities nationwide on a single day.
2) Home Modification Program – Designed to enhance the ability of persons with disabilities to remain in their homes and prevent unnecessary institutionalization. Home modifications are adaptations to the living environment intended to increase independence, safety and security.
3) Healthy at Home – Our emergency repair program allows homeowners to stay in their homes
by providing critical repairs such as broken toilets and other plumbing repairs, electrical emergencies, foundation issues such as caving porches and stairway, and other serious problems requiring immediate attention. We utilize volunteers when possible, but require mostly paid trade professionals to respond to serious emergency needs that cannot wait for the annual Rebuilding Day. The program supplements services offered by the City of Omaha, the League of Human Dignity, the VNA and, ENOA. These collaboration help to create a safety net designed to cut through “red tape” and address problems on an immediate basis. In 2013-14, 193 homeowners were assisted through either our Home Modification Program or our Healthy at Home program.
4) Raise the Roof – Leaking roofs cause devastating damage to a home’s safety as water seeps into ceilings and walls. The walls and ceilings collapse. Electrical wiring burns out presenting a fire hazard. Mold grows causing breathing disorders. In 2013-14, our roof repair and replacement program made the difference in preserving the integrity of 88 homes.
Our services help homeowners remain in their homes in safety, warmth and independence. For more information, www.RebuildingTogetherOmaha.org
