Providing a broad base of services

Notre Dame Housing has provided service-enriched, affordable housing for low-to-moderate income seniors for 25 years. We envision creating a community that provides older adults with the resources to maintain a safe, comfortable, and independent lifestyle.

We serve 117 senior residents in North Omaha. Additionally, our senior center is open to the public so any local senior can come to our programs. What makes our model unique?  We employ both a Service Coordinator and a Life Enrichment Coordinator for the benefit of the residents. Additionally, we manage a public senior center onsite and a regularly scheduled food pantry for the residents and broader community.

Serving our residents

Our on-site Service Coordinator is an incredible support to the people who live here. Our dedicated Service Coordinator helps residents meet their needs through individual assessments, referrals, providing information about available community resources and how to use them, emergency assistance and or crisis intervention. Community partnerships are key to coordinating services for our residents’ and we take pride in building local relationships that enrich residents’ lives and their ability to maintain independence.

Our Service Coordinator accomplishes the following for our residents:

  • Assess service needs of residents and links them to appropriate providers.
  • Facilitate programs and services such as health and wellness, job training, or transportation.
  • Assists residents with applications for benefits and entitlement programs.
  • Advocate for adequate, timely, and cost-effective provision of services.

Serving the community

Our Life Enrichment Coordinator hosts public programming for any local senior at our onsite senior center. These include lectures, health clinics and entertainment events.

Senior Lunch Program

The Senior Lunch Program is offered year-round to alleviate poor nutrition among older adults, especially those who live alone or on limited incomes. The meals are planned and certified by a dietitian. Combined with the regular socialization provided by our program, we enhance the well-being, health, and dignity of local seniors.

​This nutrition program seeks to enhance the physical and mental well-being of the senior population by:

  • Encouraging a sense of dignity.
  • Providing stimulating activities and volunteer opportunities.
  • Augmenting participants’ financial resources by providing contribution-based meals.

Meals are planned and certified by a dietician to meet one third of each person’s daily nutritional needs, based on FDA guidelines. (Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging)
