Christ Child North Services

Address: 2111 Emmet Street Omaha NE 68110   Phone: 402-453-6363

Three times a week local seniors come together at Christ Child North to improve their lives through education, physical activity and community involvement.  Catholic Charities educates the group on issues and challenges impacting seniors today, including Medicare, Social Security, fall and accident prevention, financial management, tax preparation and numerous health issues.  They also stress the importance of community involvement and becoming advocates for themselves and others.

Programs offered include:

  • Walking Club
  • Blood Pressure Checks
  • Eye Care Presentations
  • Health Education
  • Cancer Survivor's Group

Our seniors are also encouraged to participate in community events.  The Sazzy’s Seniors at Christ Child North participated in the annual Juneteenth parade, the Native of Omaha parade, and are encouraged to volunteer twice a month at the Royal Oak and Hidden Hills Assisted Living facilities.

The senior program at Christ Child North proudly continues to grow and embrace opportunities to involve more seniors throughout the community.
