Naomi Hattaway is passionate about community building and empowering others to thrive, not just survive, in the places they call home. In this show, we talk about identifying as bi-racial, homeschooling, housing access and poverty, being a teenage mom, living in the third world, and being inspired to serve the community's betterment.
Born and raised in a small town in rural Nebraska, Naomi moved with family to Omaha and since then has taken her own family to live in places like India and Singapore. Her life experiences have catalyzed Naomi's passion about community building and empowering others to thrive, not just survive, in the places they call home. She ran recently for City Council in Omaha, with a bid to represent District 6, the central section of West Omaha. Her next venture continues her work in affordable housing, this time on a larger scale, that will impact all of Greater Omaha with development, policy and advocacy, and a strong focus on ending homelessness.
