Change is Hard. You strive for something different but along the path you find tension, from others or within yourself? We all fight old habits and hurts and feel pressure from others to conform. But there is Hope and Help along the way.
Click on the link above and read about Dillon, Richie, and Rachel - 3 OSS students determined to take positive steps forward in life even if it means going against the grain.
YOU can provide HOPE and HELP. Please read their stories and pray about financially partnering with OSS to help these young adults and others like them. Your donation really does make a difference.

It's that time of year again! Partner with Hy-Vee and OSS to raise money for OSS! It is soooo easy! Just save your (original) receipts from purchases made at any Hy-Vee store from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31, 2013 and send them in to OSS. We get $1 for every $200 in receipt totals. Last year we made over $800. Thanks Hy-Vee for the opportunity! For more information, click the link above.
Help us educate through Tweets and Blogs!Posted by Tami Saunders on 08/30/2013
You may or may not have a Twitter account or a Blog, but you can still join in the fun AND participate in TRANSFORMATION THROUGH EDUCATION at OSS!
HELP SPREAD THE WORD: Follow us on Twitter or just scroll through the Twitter feed (bottom right) to see what is happening in our daily lives at OSS! Re-tweet, text, or call your network of friends to get them involved in building a better Omaha. Way better than reality TV!
HELP EDUCATE: We are also asking you to click on our BLOG link (top right) and see what our students and staff are doing and saying in the classroom. You don't have to use your real name (but can if you like) and no one sees your email address. Every time you comment on a blog, our students are learning communications and conversation skills. Blog comments are discussed weekly in class activities.
Welcome to our website!
The Omaha Street School, a faith-based alternative high school, located in Omaha, Nebraska, puts at-risk youth on the road to success. Omaha Street School focuses on dropout prevention by offering a personalized education, a moral code, and tools for self-sufficiency through non-traditional approaches.
The 9th-12th grade high school students at OSS have typically not succeeded in traditional public or private schools, and many arrive with significant learning deficiencies. Students come from the recommendations of current/former students, community partners, and the juvenile justice system. OSS offers low student to teacher ratios, individualized student learning plans and a focus on career pathways.
The OSS Future Focus program is designed to move clients, ages 17 and older, towards job readiness or continuing education. Programs include individualized GED tutoring and job skills certification opportunities in collaboration with community partners.
The Omaha Street School is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
