What is the Opportunity Campus?

The Opportunity Campus will be a housing and community space in Omaha, Nebraska for LGBTQIA2S+ youth and young adults who are system-impacted. We understand system-impacted to include individuals who have been impacted by such violent carceral systems as incarceration, detention, foster care, and family surveillance.

This initiative will provide housing, wrap around support services, mental health support, daily drop-in services (such as hot meals, showers, food pantry, and laundry), and community programming to system-impacted LGBTQIA2S+ youth, young adults, and their families. All services at the Opportunity Campus will be provided at no-cost to our residents and members.

The Opportunity Campus: Capital Campaign!

We need to raise nearly $2 million to cover the full costs of the Opportunity Campus capital campaign. Black & Pink National simply cannot raise these funds alone – We are relying on the strength of our community to achieve the development of the Opportunity Campus!

We were fortunate enough to be positioned to utilize general funds to purchase the Opportunity Campus space so that we would not lose it, but we are still on a mission to acquire the remaining funds for the purchase of the space ($300,000 in total) and onwards to our ultimate goal of needing to raise nearly $2 million to make this initiative a reality!
