LIVES & COMMUNITIES
The mission of the Nehemiah Program is to see that more affordable housing becomes a reality particularly in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan area, and through its housing programs bring about improved economic opportunities for its residents and the communities in which they exist.
Since our inception in April 2011, we have become one of the most highly successful cost-effective housing solutions in the region. This success is due to creative, innovative and new partnerships that create a synergy for turning around lives and communities simultaneously.
Success is possible when stakeholders from every sector of a community comes together and leverage their time, talent, and resources. The Nehemiah Program is successful because we focus on people first, because we believe that everyone deserves a place to call home.
Home represents so much more for people than a place to simply sleep. It represents access and independence. It represents the American Dream, and the Nehemiah Program's flagship program, the Greater House Recovery Residences, has made this possible for over 175 women.
The Greater House Recovery Residences provide housing and wrap-around support services for homeless women, ages 18 and over, in recovery from the epidemic level of opiate abuse. Currently, the program provides 24 beds in 3 nationally accredited recovery residences.
