SERVWare
We are now using a Vincentian designed software program called ServWare to do our work more efficiently. This tool allows us to refer people who reach out to us through a parish or our District Help Line to the Conference in their neighborhood; track the help needed and provided; produce clear data for annual reports with one click of a button, and more. We are very excited to get this program up and running in all of our Conferences. If any Conference needs help learning the software, please reach out to our Conference Support guru Kristina at: conferencesupport@svdpoamaha.com.

The Holy Family Ministries are the services started by Holy Family Parish decades ago that the Society still supports. They include:

Sack Lunch Program - a free lunch, no questions asked, M-F 10:30-11:30
Street Outreach - free lunch and monthly tp and detergent through our vans in east Omaha, M-F, 11-12 (looking for North O routes/spots - let us know if you have one!)
Closet Door (formerly Door Ministry) - free emergency clothing and toiletries, M-F 9-10

These programs are run by an amazing group of volunteers and can always use your help. We don't ask for id and we try to accommodate everyone that comes to us with a warm greeting and safe place to ask for help. Thank you for all of your support!
Closet Door
Lines have been long and supplies sometimes run short at the Closet Door. We are in constant need of men's size 32 jeans, pants and shorts. We purchase all new socks and underwear as well.
