Bread for the World

BFW is a citizens lobby.  It comprises a collection of organizations, mostly Christian churches, and citizens, that work together to educate then act to enact government policies that minimize hunger locally and around the world.   Holy Family is a member organization.

Omaha Together One Community

OTOC is a local multiethnic, interfaith organization whose members work together to change the lives of ordinary citizens through social justice and local political action.  Members are mostly congregations.  Holy Family is a member church.  OTOC now is in an information gathering part of the year.  One-on-one meetings, house meetings, and church meetings are being held to uncover the issues and problems folks have in their local neighborhoods.  These will then be organized into action groups that study then meet with government officials to try to better the situation.

New action groups are  Mental Health, Environment and Sustainability, Community Violence Research, and Death and Taxes.  The last group continues to discuss how to bring the health insurance to all.  Other action groups continue on housing rehab, education, and development, and refugees.
