Metro Women's Club

2023 - 2024 Charity


LOMB is a street ministry with it’s roots in St. Patrick’s Church in Gretna and it’s branches reach out across the city to serve the homeless in Omaha and Council Bluffs. Firstly, they provide basic survival needs to those on the street. Secondly, their goal is to identify individuals who can sustain themselves with a source of income and help them get situated in a new apartment with all the furnishings needed. LOMB provides food, blessing bags, clothing, and sleeping bags. They hold monthly breakfasts and lunches where they provide free haircuts and bicycles (for mobility to get to work) in addition to food. Their ultimate goal is to offer a solution to homelessness and give individuals a chance to have the dignity and success that everyone deserves. 25% of their weekly move-ins provide women support to establish a new home environment enabling them to flee their pasts and get a fresh start in life. They work closely with other nonprofits including Bethlehem House and Mater Filius and the Salvation Army.
