Giving Back to the Community
Bridge Network, an Omaha-based nonprofit, in conjunction with Metropolitan Community College (MCC), developed a house as part of the MCC Capstone Project. This 1,550 square foot home with three bedrooms, two baths and a two-car garage were constructed by students from MCC’s Construction Education program alongside experienced mentors and faculty. The home was built indoors, inside MCC’s Construction Education Center and moved to its permanent location at 5603 North 30th St. The Bridge Network acquired the land with the assistance of the Omaha Land Bank. The open floor plan includes a kitchen, dining and living space. The basement is ready to finish and will support two more bedrooms and bath, along with living, laundry, and storage rooms.
