Come, let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we may no longer be a disgrace. - Nehemiah 2:17b, AMP

Welcome

To the online home of Nehemiah House.

We are a faith-based organization. We are a collection of believers with a resolute faith. We believe that if we love God and allow his love to permeate us, the world will take notice and follow.

We know God's grace.
We've experienced God's mercy.
We experience His unfailing love.

We've decided in our hearts and minds, to be a bridge to a better life for those that have been discarded, rejected, or have otherwise fallen on hard times. Our commitment is to build Nehemiah House to offer hope to those who have no hope, freedom to those who remain in bondage, healing for those who are broken and bruised, and salvation for the lost.
