About Us

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

We are a nonprofit organization that works to create a Healthy Home for every child. Our main goal is to bring awareness and education to families in the city about environmental hazards, green and Healthy Homes, and lead poisoning. We believe that education is fundamental for empowering people and creating change.

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

Children need more than just education to be successful; they need a healthy home environment so that they can become the best versions of themselves.
