Emergency Flood Relief

For emergency assistance, call 2-1-1.

Catholic Charities of Omaha is committed to working toward the full recovery of those affected by the flooding in and around the Omaha Archdiocesan area. We are partnering with the Knights of Columbus to distribute and allocate food and supplies and are accepting monetary donations that allow us to quickly address the variety of long-term recovery needs of disaster survivors that follow a catastrophe of this magnitude. 

Our neighbors need our help.  Flood waters have destroyed homes and displaced families.  You may donate on-line here to contribute directly to families impacted by the flood.
