Who We Are

We serve the under-resourced population of the greater Madison area with a primary focus on at-risk African American families. Nehemiah addresses the needs of the entire family by focusing on spiritual issues, economic needs and academic success. We inspire transformation by building meaningful relationships, providing coaching and mentoring, creating peer support groups and offering mediation and advocacy. In order to interrupt the cycle of poverty, racism, and discrimination that many families face, we concentrate on prevention, early intervention, education and restoration. We also collaborate with established leaders in our community and develop emerging urban leaders to transform our powerful vision into a meaningful reality.

Our leader has been featured on the cover of the Cap Times and has a centerfold spread in the current issue. Visit host.madison.com and search for "Justified Anger" to read the article that has all of Madison buzzing!

The ACE program for elementary students uses middle school students in our MID program to serve as junior coaches. Through their training and service, the MID participants have grown tremendously. Parents of middle school students are eager to get their children involved.
