Local Organizations
January 01, 2011

Together, Inc. is a local non-profit organization helping people in need.  Founded in 1975 in response to a natural disaster, it became apparent that many in the Omaha area were struggling with meeting basic needs of food, clothing and shelter year round.  Together, Inc. remained open to offer these free services to individuals and families on an ongoing basis.  Florence Christian Church has come alongside this mission with both financial support and "sweat equity" offering assistance with special fundraising drives and taking on remodeling projects.

Youth Emergency Services has offered a safe place for young people in crisis for 35 years.  Last year alone, more than 161 homeless and at-risk teens spent at least one night in our Omaha shelter.  Their facilities and programs assist these youth as they transition to living independently in the community.

Deaf Missions is a Christian mission dedicated to helping deaf people SEE Jesus Christ, so they may accept Him as their Savior and grow in Him. Deaf Missions was founded in 1970. People across the United States and Canada, and in more than 80 other countries, are served by Deaf Missions. Bible visuals produced by Deaf Missions are used by more than 50 different denominational groups. The work is supported by freewill offerings from individuals, churches and organizations.
