+ Miller Park Reading Program

This is our third year of reading to 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders at Miller Park Elementary School. During school, St. Paul’s members volunteer to read to the children. Each child receives the same book that is being read to keep as his or her own. St. Paul’s purchases these books. So far we have read to over 360 children and given over two thousand books. We hope to expand the program to Rockwell Elementary here in Millard.

+ Habitat for Humanity

St. Paul’s is a member of the Faithful Builders Coalition for Omaha Habitat for Humanity. We are one of eleven area churches that team together for this coalition. Each year, the Faithful Builders Coalition constructs a new home in the Omaha area starting in August and finishing in late October. Our goal is simple: “to build a simple, decent, house” for a family that makes 25 to 50% of median income. The family makes a down payment in 350 hours of sweat equity plus a $500 down payment at closing. The habitat home is purchased at cost with a no interest mortgage of 20 to 30 years that includes an escrow for taxes and insurance. Donations of land, materials, and labor from community members help to keep the cost of the house affordable. Omaha Habitat gives a percentage of the cost of each house to a Habitat organization in another country. This donation may fund an entire house in that country. Fifty homes were constructed by Omaha Habitat in 2015. Our project for 2016 is a new house from the ground up.
