We envision a future where care is just as accessible as it is excellent. A future where patients are uniquely treated while being equally treated. A future where death is dignified, and terminal doesn’t mean finished. A future where housing doesn’t determine quality of care, and that care gives hope to a brighter tomorrow. A future where people of all abilities can prosper.
This future is happening today, every day, in our organization, but our work is never done.
Your partnership is invaluable in forging this vision for the community we love.
We invite you to join us in ensuring quality healthcare is accessible to those who need it most. VNA never walks away from a person in need.
Your support is life-changing, and we need your help.
VNA is the only local home healthcare provider that delivers care for injury, illness or terminal disease, regardless of a patient’s ability to pay. VNA is also one of the few post-acute options for COVID-19 patients.
In Ken’s situation, we not only provided the care he needed to return to work, we were able to identify a medical issue that changed the course of his life because of our direct engagement with patients.
VNA’s nurses, social workers and parent coaches visit vulnerable families in their homes, using strengths-based approaches and interventions to improve the health, parenting skills and self-sufficiency of families. It’s more than temporary help, it’s positioning families for lifetime success.
Through our partnership with Love and Learn, we were able to help Shyla, a teen mom, learn about newborn care, child safety and how to care for herself.
As part of our long-term commitment to community wellness, VNA offers flu immunizations throughout Omaha, Council Bluffs and surrounding communities.

VNA, in partnership with Susan G. Komen Great Plains and community donors, provides financial support through the Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Program for men and women in Nebraska and western Iowa undergoing treatment or in recovery.
Thanks to the Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Program, and the overwhelming support from her family, friends and significant other, Kari was able to focus on her treatment, recovery and her daughter. Now, she’s in remission.
VNA hospice never walks away from those overwhelmed by terminal illness who feel helpless and afraid. At VNA, we believe hospice is about living until one’s last breath.
Brian was 24 years old and he was dying of aggressive cancer. VNA stepped in and used donor funds to provide healthcare, hospice, extensive medications and the equipment he needed. Brian received the level of care and compassion that he could not afford, but deserved.
As the exclusive provider of public health nursing services in every local domestic violence and homeless shelter in the Omaha Metro, VNA’s Shelter Nursing program is an essential component within the local continuum of services that meet the needs of the most vulnerable and help them move toward stability and self-sufficiency.
