EADAN currently provides services to 450 low-income immigrant families. The
majority of our families are originally from Somalia, Nepal, Kenya, Ethiopia, and South
Sudan. These families currently reside in Omaha, Nebraska, with 95% residing within
Douglas County. Our families come to us seeking direction and assistance in many areas.
EADAN helps our families connect to available programs by providing screening services and
application assistance for receiving services including:
EADAN works to ensure the stability of all families we serve. Through case management support, rental assistance and a food pantry, EADAN empowers families to navigate challenges, meet their basic needs, and focus on developing and utilizing their talents to build a better future.
Talented members of the immigrant community help power all sectors of our local economy. Through partnerships with companies and workforce stakeholders, EADAN helps connect motivated job seekers to their next opportunity while also meeting the critical labor demands of area employers.
Our youth are the future. EADAN facilitates afterschool and mentoring programs to invest in young people and ensure they have opportunities to learn and develop leadership skills outside of the classroom. Their success is our success.
Immigrants face a host of challenges when moving to a new country, beginning with the daunting task of navigating complex immigration procedures and legal systems. Beyond paperwork, they often grapple with language barriers, making it difficult to communicate, secure employment, and integrate into local communities. Economic challenges are common, as immigrants often need to start from scratch in building a new life, finding a job, and securing housing. EADAN serves these wonderful people in Omaha Nebraska.
