Omaha Gives OneWorld marketing image

A note from Andrea Skolkin, Chief Executive Officer of OneWorld:

It’s evident that OneWorld matters to our community. In 2018, 46,292 unique patients from 78 ZIP codes received care during 168,228 visits to our clinics. Of those patients,

  • 93% of those with a known income lived at or below 200% of poverty ($50,200 for a family of four in 2018)
  • 65% were racial and ethnic minorities
  • 49% were uninsured
  • 40% were children under age 19

All of us who work at OneWorld know that we are a vital resource for everyone who walks through our doors in search of quality, affordable health care. We welcome and care for everyone, regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sexual orientation, age, gender identity, immigration status or ability to pay.

With our mission in mind, we ask that you choose OneWorld as an organization to support during Omaha Gives! this year. Omaha Gives! is a 24-hour, online fundraising event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation. The event takes place on Wednesday, May 22. The funds we raise through our Omaha Gives! page will directly benefit our patients and make a difference in the health of underserved members of our community. No matter what amount you are able to give, your donation matters.

Donating to OneWorld through Omaha Gives! is easy—just visit www.OmahaGives.org/OneWorld on May 22 and click “donate now.” If you choose to give through our Omaha Gives! page anytime between May 1 and May 22, your donation will count toward our May 22 total. If you are able to give between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on May 22, your gift could have a bigger impact—last year, we were able to secure an additional $1,000 for our patients for having the highest number of donors during that timeframe.

Thank you in advance! We are grateful for your generosity and for your continued support of our mission.

OneWorld Matters Because Omaha Gives marketing image

OneWorld matters because there is never a day when a patient leaves the clinic without getting the care, needs, support, etc. they need to thrive in life.Salana Lamkins, Medical Assistant
OneWorld matters because we are one less obstacle for Omaha community members. We provide a lending hand, an outlet and a smile for people who need it the most.Nicole Partusch, ESL Instructor
Without OneWorld, 46,000 patients wouldn’t have services … We serve where we are most needed. It is the beacon of hope for health care in Omaha.James Connelly, behavioral health therapist
