We are so blessed to have been given the encouragement of Archbishop George J. Lucas to develop a group within the Omaha Archdiocese to provide an opportunity for Catholic professionals and business people to meet one another and discover ways in which we can be successful business professionals and faithful Catholics at the same time. It also provides a chance to network with Catholic business people in the Archdiocese to help create a better business climate.
If you are a Catholic, or would just enjoy spending time in a networking environment where the perspective embraces the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, and you have an interest in hearing some wonderful, encouraging speakers who promote Catholic Christian values within their daily work lives, you are welcome to become a member of the Catholic Professional & Business Club of the Archdiocese of Omaha.

Lori Hogan and her husband Paul founded Home Instead Senior Care® in 1994. The company started as a small business operated from Paul’s mother’s dining room table and is now the largest senior care organization in the world. Lori focuses her work on bettering the lives of Home Instead’s 65,000 CAREGivers and is a source of inspiration for franchise owners.

She was presented with the “Successful Business Woman Award” by the Omaha Downtown Chapter of American Business Women’s Association in 2004.
Lori and Paul received the “E” Award from the Department of Commerce in May 2008 to recognize their success in exporting their home care business concept to other countries through the Home Instead Senior Care franchise network. This award is one of the highest honors the federal government presents to individuals, firms or organizations that make a significant contribution to American exports. It was presented at a White House ceremony with President George W. Bush.
Paul and Lori co-authored Stages of Senior Care (McGraw-Hill) in 2009 to help seniors and their families make informed decisions about the senior care options available today.
