“HELP has been very beneficial for me, my family and my friends. In times of need, they were always there to help with medical supplies and equipment such as wheelchairs, IV Poles and bath benches. What a blessing they have been for us all.”

Our History

In 1982, philanthropists Dr. Ross Robson, Marjorie Kiewit, Willis Strauss and other community leaders began their mission through the First Presbyterian Church of Omaha. From a makeshift office in the church boiler room, the “Presbyterian Outreach” helped elderly and low-income people remain independent and safe in their own homes. The Outreach evolved into today’s thriving nonprofit 501c3 organization known as HELP (Health Equipment & Long-term Planning).
