The 100 Black Men of Omaha, Inc. (100) was established in 1995 when a group of concerned men realized that the survival of the Omaha community rested on their willingness to join together and be a vehicle for positive change. Today the 100 Black Men of Omaha is one of over 100 chapters nationally and internationally that make up the 100 Black Men of America, an alliance of leading African-American men from a myriad of professions including community leaders, business executives, physicians, attorneys, entrepreneurs, elected officials and educators. The mission of the 100 Black Men of Omaha is to improve the quality of life in Omaha by helping our youth reach their fullest potential.
The 100 Black Men of Omaha is committed to the intellectual development of our youth and the empowerment of the African-American community based on the following precepts: respect for family, spirituality, justice, and integrity. Over the years members, volunteers and staff have leveraged resources to develop a system based on our “Four For The Future” initiatives. These categories consist of Mentoring, Education, Economic Development, and Health & Wellness. We believe that if we focus our efforts on these core areas, we ultimately will create a foundation of success for our youth and community. The Omaha Chapter is comprised of members who volunteer their time, talent, and resources making our motto “Real Men Giving Real Time” a way of life.
