DHHS Economic Assistance Office on Cuming St.
Closes Wednesday Prior to Move

Omaha – The Department of Health and Human Services’ economic assistance office at 2428 Cuming will close permanently Wednesday (2/11), but other options will be available to provide services to clients, said Jill Schreck, deputy director of Economic Assistance.
Clients may drop off applications or use a phone at the DHHS office at 1215 S. 42nd St. or the State Office Building at 1313 Farnam. They also may call 402-595-1258 for assistance.
“This is a temporary arrangement until Douglas County completes renovation of the new North Omaha DHHS office at 1500 North 24th St., Suite 102,” she said.
Douglas County estimates the project will be completed by early March.
