Located in historic Florence, Omaha, apartments here are located in an historic building that was previously a boarding school, adding a unique history and an antique flair to much of the original building. Notre Dame Housing isn’t just apartments, it’s a community. “I feel like I have 125 neighbors,” said resident Mike Driscoll. With all of the activity at NDH, it’s almost impossible not to find something you enjoy and meet more neighbors.

Our integrated housing approach combines high-quality independent housing for seniors with wrap-around supportive services such as counseling, life skills training, and service coordination. All of this contributes to housing stability allowing people to live independently longer.
