Omaha Home for Boys Forms Partnership With Chariots4Hope, Awards Car
Omaha Home for Boys and Chariots4Hope recently formed a new partnership that will help pair at-risk young adults with reliable, affordable transportation.
Omaha-based nonprofit Chariots4Hope collects and restores donated vehicles and awards them to low-income families and individuals. Omaha Home for Boys will act as a referring organization, connecting young men and women from its Branching Out Independent Living Program with Chariots4Hope.
“With our similar missions to help individuals move from a state of crisis and vulnerability to one of safety and self-sufficiency, this partnership was the perfect fit for both Omaha Home for Boys and Chariots4Hope,” said Jeff Moran, Omaha Home for Boys’ President & CEO. “The partnership will be a key component in helping to break down the barriers to transportation that many of our clients face.”
The partnership has already proven to be a success. The first Omaha Home for Boys’ client, Maurionte, received a Chariots4Hope car on September 8 during a surprise ceremony. Maurionte’s car will allow him to safely get to school and his part-time job, opening doors that he once thought were impossible to unlock.
