Our history

In 1896, Anna Millard Rogers founded Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) to bring healthcare and support into the streets and homes of Omaha. She saw people living in poverty who were sick and injured with no access to healthcare, and she delivered care directly to them.

125 years later, VNA continues to provide care wherever people call home — for some, that’s a homeless shelter, for others, it’s an apartment or a home where they want to remain independently. For our community, it means providing access to healthcare and supportive services for those who are uninsured and under resourced.

An anniversary message from our mayor

Mayor Jean Stothert congratulates VNA nurses on our dedication to providing community care throughout our organization’s 125 years.
