About Us

The mission of Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance (OHKA) is to improve children’s health through Healthy Homes.

We are a children's environmental health nonprofit whose mission is to improve children's health through healthy homes. Our main goal is to bring awareness and education to families in the city about environmental hazards in the home, and how these hazards can impact our health. We believe that education is fundamental for empowering people and creating change, and we provide construction upgrades to eligible clients that improve the health of their homes and families.

We strive to create environmental equality in Omaha for all by offering education on health hazards in the home, tenant legal rights, environmental testing, construction upgrades, and information on the community resources available in the city.
