There are a couple of ways that you can support Project Christmas Joy and help needy youth and families in the community. Monetary gifts can be given online at or items can be purchased via the “Project Christmas Joy for OHB” Amazon Wish List and shipped directly to OHB.

Through programs focusing on education, housing, employment, basic life skills, and mental and behavioral health, Omaha Home for Boys helps youth, young adults, and families transition from a state of crisis to one of safety and growth. Learn more about OHB or their counseling services online at
