Each year I enjoy reflecting on what has happened in and through Nehemiah. It is good to look back, see what has happened, celebrate the good and learn from the rest. This year I am particularly grateful for so many things. We have been able to expand our programming, especially in our K-12 and Reentry areas. ACE now offers year round elements or programming. We have added a group mentoring program for middle school black boys that we call BROTHER. Nehemiah was able to purchase additional properties to use for giving ex-offenders a good and safe place to live.

The list goes on.

Join us for hope, transformation, and justice in Madison.

Real Transformation

Perhaps the biggest threat to the eventual realization of this fragile dream was the very real temptation for these educated, young African Americans to move away after graduation.
