Welcome to Sheltering Tree
Sheltering Tree is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization, dedicated to building a housing community in the Omaha metro area to serve and meet the needs of young adults with developmental disabilities, such as Down Syndrome and autism.
Like everyone else, individuals with developmental disabilities should have the chance to realize their full potential. They should be able to reach maximum independence, lead a productive and fulfilling life, build lifelong friendships, and be supported in their personal and religious beliefs so that they can contribute and belong to the greater community.
The future site of Sheltering Tree was blessed by His Grace Bishop Basil and members of the Orthodox Christian Church.
