Family Spotlight

Welcome to the Nehemiah Center

Our mission is to create a safe haven in which children are motivated, inspired and equipped to realize their God-given potential. The success of our programs are reflected not only in our growth but also in the lives we have enriched. When children are at-risk, their needs are multiple. We serve not just the child's immediate needs, but the needs of the whole family.

About Us

Volunteer Testimonials


Having never known my own father, I know from personal experience that there were men in my life who were key in my development. I have worked with three boys at the Center who come from single-parent families. I leave each time with a personal sense of happiness having done something that makes God smile.
