"They will do better when they know we see them."

- Ralph Williams

Nehemiah Project looks to transform the body, lifestyle, and outcomes with the renewing of the mind. 

“A paradigm shift is a major change in the concepts and practices of how something works, or is accomplished. In this case, we are talking about the way a person thinks and lives, as well as their world views. This paradigm shift in thinking, living, and world views should occur at least four times; twice before the age of 25; and two times after it. In some cases, this shift doesn’t occur without the help of a “change agent”. 

We present to you that change agent: THE NEHEMIAH PROJECT! A person becomes a difference maker when they learn that what they put into the world is far more important than what they get out of it!

Our Mission

The Nehemiah Project’s mission is to provide services to Returning Citizens (RCs), those in recovery, and veterans, in obtaining the treatment and support necessary for leading healthy and productive lives.  Nehemiah provides a safe & structured living environment, access to health care and social services, and a link to opportunities that can lead to a return to individual dignity and self-sufficiency—free from the depravity of homelessness, addiction and alcoholism, and active mental health disorders.
