Mount Olive already supports Lutheran Family Services (LFS) through our "Bringing Christ to All the World" tithe. LFS has applied for and received a grant under the CARES Act that enables LFS to serve Nebraska individuals and families whose lives have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The financial assistance from this fund may be used to cover the following:
- Overdue rent or mortgage to avoid eviction or foreclosure
- Utility costs to prevent shutoff
- Basic needs items, including groceries, formula, diapers, personal hygiene products, and household cleansers
- Purchase of one smartphone and/or tablet per household to enable telehealth access or for school-aged youth to access online school platforms.
if you know of anyone who might need any of the above help in Omaha or anywhere in the State of Nebraska, please assist them by downloading and referring them to one of the information sheets in English or in Spanish.
