Giving Back To the Community in Omaha, West Point, Lincoln & Grand Island

At Hands of Heartland, we do everything that we can to give back to our local communities and partner with them on new initiatives. We are mostly known for offering a variety of services to adults with disabilities and their families, but we have found ways to combine our passion for helping people with our desire to become a larger part of the local communities in the areas we serve, including Omaha, Lincoln, and other nearby areas.
Let’s take a closer look at how our efforts help the communities that we serve.

Our Vocational Services

One of our specialties is helping disabled adults gain skills and independence by participating in the workforce. This means partnering with local businesses in our communities that will give the adults we care for an opportunity to work.
This is beneficial for the people we work with, but it’s beneficial to the local businesses and community as well. Employers get new workers who are eager to learn and excel in their new role, and their customers can learn a bit more about the people we work with while helping them get the social experience they need to become more independent, well-rounded adults.

Community Integration Services

Our community integration services help disabled adults gain independence, but these services also help us give back to the community at large. Our programs allow disabled adults to do something that they love, including activities like gardening, playing games and making pottery. Then we make sure that other people from the community can take part too.
We’re not doing these events in secret or closed locations. These events take place in community co-ops that welcome everybody. These programs help the disabled adults we support. They get to gain life skills and get the chance to socialize with more people. They get to take part in activities that they enjoy. We’re confident that the other people who come to these events also get something out of it, and we look forward to continuing our community integration efforts.

The Create-Ables Program

Create-Ables is another program meant to enrich the adults we care for. Arts and crafts can be a great outlet for anyone, but the people we work with also relish the chance to get more chances to interact with other members of their community. Create-Ables is completely open to the public. We have a complete, functioning woodshop and everything else needed to safely create some beautiful artwork.
Then the pieces created at these events are shown off at local events. Nearby craft shows and pop-up shops are a great place to display the talents of the adults that we care for. Any time that we can engage the local community and help the disabled adults that we work with gain confidence, independence, and skills, we’ll take that opportunity.
