What We Do

We Are Defeating Poverty

At Omaha Bridges, our mission is defeating poverty—period. We believe the most empowering and effective way to do this is to not merely give people fish—we teach them how to fish!

Over the next decade, we are committed to helping 25,000 working-age adults lift themselves out of poverty. To accomplish this challenging goal, we believe that Omaha Bridges is THE most effective poverty reducing program. Why? It’s holistic, and it empowers the individual.
