Omaha, NE sits on the bank of the Missouri River. We are the home of the College World Series and our Henry Doorly Zoo is one of the top 10 in the world. Omaha is the home of Father Flannagan’s Girls and Boys Town, is the Headquarters of the Union Pacific Railroad and Mutual of Omaha. In the 50’s, Omaha was the Livestock Capital of the World and many ethnic groups settled in the South Omaha area where the packing houses and stockyards were located. Today, some of those same families who worked in the packing houses still own those homes and are quite elderly and need the help and support of CHWC.
