Open Door Mission is still planning on providing a fabulous Kids to Kamp program with plenty of activities campers can look forward to full of a Summer of HOPE Kids to Kamp was developed to provide nutrition against hunger, social interaction against isolation, and intellectual stimulation against learning loss. Lydia House is the only free program available to parents seeking recovery with their children in the Omaha-metro area. The family stays intact with supervision, and in a therapeutic environment rather than foster care. With Kids to Kamp programming, parents are empowered to work towards a better life, including working on their GED, life skills, recovery program, WorkNet, employment, housing and etc. Problems arise during the summer months for children living in poverty. Most are left home alone during the day, often to care for younger siblings. In addition to the obvious problems of leaving children at home alone all day, statistics prove that children in metropolitan areas “live in neighborhoods filled with crime, drug selling, street fights, gang violence, and abandoned buildings used for drug sales, prostitution and graffiti.” (National Household Survey on Drug Abuse).

Currently 2,421 people are homeless within the Omaha metro community according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness. The face of homelessness has changed over the years. Today, the average age of Nebraska's homeless, is 9 years-old. In fact, 1 in 4 children in Nebraska/Western Iowa do not know where their next meal is coming from
