Nehemiah serves 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 President and Founder, Alex Gee, has been featured on the cover of the Cap Times and has spurred a community-wide response to the issues of racial disparity in our community.
