Orphans and Widows of Omaha is a 501 (C) 3 non-profit corporation operating within the greater Omaha area, organized in 2014 and incorporated in 2017. 


 We are a volunteer organization, and 100% of all proceeds go directly to our beneficiaries.


Using our local network of volunteers, we provide Skills 4 Life activities, and create enrichment opportunities in the lives of young adults and widows, in our communities, state, and country. We collaborate with both non-profit and for profit organizations in the greater Omaha area.
