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).
