Together is a local, independent nonprofit organization that was initially conceived in response to the tornado disaster that struck the metropolitan area in May 1975. This disaster left hundreds of family’s homeless, hungry, and in great need.
The leaders of Countryside Community Church, Dundee Presbyterian, Temple Israel, Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church, Trinity Cathedral, First United Methodist, St. Cecilia’s Cathedral, and many others organized the “Together” cooperative effort to meet the immediate needs of the hundreds of families that were struggling with the basic necessities of life: food, clothing, and shelter.
After the cooperative was formed, our founders soon realized that not only those affected by the tornado needed help, but thousands of families in the Omaha area needed relief each and every day. This is when the FREE services of Together was opened to the community. This effort provided for ongoing human needs, primarily, the basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter.
Today, through our First Stop Program, Together provides vulnerable families, identified as the working poor, with navigation services, case management, and financial assistance to help achieve housing stability. Together operates with a paid staff of twelve full time employees, as well as dozens of volunteers. Last year, Together provided more than 21,000 services to families in need. People, local corporations, faith and human service organizations rely on Together to provide these necessities for their employees, neighbors, clients, and children.
