The Heart Ministry Center provides basic necessities, educational opportunities, health outreach events, and support to individuals and families in north Omaha and surrounding areas.
The Heart Ministry Center originated nearly 40 years ago as the Sacred Heart Human Needs Door Ministry. Beginning in 1982, the ministry provided food, clothing, and other basic needs for neighbors and families of children enrolled at Sacred Heart School. In 1997, the ministry moved to a building at 31st and Spaulding Street and became known as the Heart Ministry Center.
In 2002, Fr. Tom Fangman enlisted the support of 12 community and business leaders to raise funds for the construction of new building to house the Heart Ministry Center. Construction was completed in May 2005 and the current Center opened to assist those in need.
Beginning in 2010, the Center entered into another period of rapid growth. The Center expanded healthcare services, developed a group mentoring program for at-risk youth, added free legal services, opened a dental clinic, and introduced social work and case management services. In 2015, the Center provided services to an average of 7,000 people per month. Despite the increase in services, the Heart Ministry Center strives to provide the same high quality, personalized care to every client who walks through the door.
