Enriching Lives Through Giving and God’s Love.

Oma’s Heart is a God given mission to help local families by showing them His love and compassion during a difficult time.

Volunteers gather each year to provide Christmas gifts for children,  but equally as important, we spend time with each and every family that comes to Oma’s Heart to encourage them and pray with them as they navigate through a tough time.

Our desire is that they feel the true Spirit of Christmas as they enter the doors of Oma’s Heart and a sense of Hope as they leave.

Who is Oma?

Oma - Mom“Oma” a word for grandmother in Dutch.

From Holland, Irvine Ruhé dedicated her life to her children, her grandchildren, and countless others.

She was known to hold her hand over her heart and say: “Children are in my heart.”

“Oma”, Irvine Ruhé, instilled several very important life-lessons in her family: to be kind to everyone you meet, to always listen for God’s call and to be His hands and feet.

When founding this organization, it was easy when it came time to pick a name.

Since 2010, Oma’s Heart was dedicated to my Mom, the Oma of my children and to so many others whose lives she touched.
