About Omaha Metro CHADD.
Our mission is to provide support and education to the ADHD community that incorporates parents and caregivers of children as well as adults in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area diagnosed with ADHD. This support is done in such a way that encourages a collaborative effort to bring awareness with the help of healthcare professionals.
Our Professional Advisory and Local Membership board have finalized the goals for the new local Chapter. One of the main goals is to increase memberships to CHADD. Click the link to our CHADD National office and sign up to become a member. Make sure you designate our local chapter when you join. A portion of your membership is sent back to each local chapter as an additional way to support us. A strong membership base provides a strong foundation within any nonprofit. Community outreach through appearances at health fairs and school events are currently being utilized.
Multiple fundraising opportunities are available to support our local Chapter and the National office.
--An ongoing fundraising campaign through PayPal giving fund at .
In 2017 we raised 125.00. In 2018 we raised 95.00. In 2019 we raised 240.00. Funds were donated through round up contributions.
--Send a check to our local mailing address at Omaha Metro CHADD.
--SAVE YOUR GROCERY STORE RECEIPTS:
If you shop at Family Fare grocery stores SAVE YOUR receipts, send them to our PO Box and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. With community support to shop and save these receipts, we have the opportunity to raise $1,000.00 for our local CHADD Chapter.
Marketing efforts continue to happen through the design of a 4 x 6 postcard which will be used for distribution at 21 different UNMC/Monroe Meyer Institute, Methodist, and CHI doctors clinics. Community assistance with handing cards out to your family doctors and specialists will be needed once these cards are printed.
Time-sensitive information regarding events and meetings can be found on our Facebook page or via email if you are on our email list. CHADD meetings have only been canceled due to weather-related issues and we follow the OPS closing calendar. If you are not on Facebook and would like to receive updates via email please visit to become part of our growing list of people in the ADHD community.
Do you need information and resource help? As a volunteer, I try to respond as quickly as possible to all requests about our local CHADD group.
However, if you have a more pressing need for information or assistance about the many aspects of dealing with ADHD (including diagnosis, treatment options, educational rights, etc.), please contact CHADD’s National Resource Center on ADHD (NRC), online at http://www.help4adhd.org/ or by phone at 800-233-4050 ( Monday-Friday, 1pm-5pm Eastern time).
The NRC is staffed by trained Health Information Specialists who can answer many of your questions about ADHD and provide other helpful information and resources. (NOTE: although the NRC does not provide legal, medical or other professional advice, Specialists can offer ideas and suggestions to help you find what you are looking for).

Local Volunteer Opportunities
CHADD volunteers help to promote our organization and its support groups to family, friends and to the specialists who serve the ADHD community. Please consider donating one to two hours a few times a year. Currently, helping to monitor a table at a school or local conference event would be a great way to assist.
Check out the events page for upcoming volunteer opportunities.
Our Omaha Metro Area CHADD group has been in continuous existence since 2012. We are growing slowly and individuals from Lincoln have been served as well. As a volunteer and the coordinator of our group, our strength as a NonProfit in Omaha depends on volunteers. Our local Working Membership board is small and we can not do it all. We are open to new volunteers being a part of our group through membership board and committee efforts. Contact me via email if you are interested.
Are you a professional interested in speaking at one of our support group meetings? Please contact us! Our members desire to learn from professionals who have a passion for improving the lives of families affected by ADHD. You would be providing a wonderful service to our community of families joined together by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Volunteers needed for ongoing projects.

Categories involve multiple outreach opportunities that take as little as two hours out of your month to help.
