This year marks a significant milestone at Nehemiah – the celebration of 50 years of working with teen boys, ages 13-18, in residential, 24 hour care. Our facilities were operating as group homes known as Transcenter for Youth from 1969 to 2002. The Nehemiah Project acquired the two group homes and their programs from Transcenter in 2002. Thus, we have been continuously operating as transitional living facilities for boys since 1969.
An evening of celebration is planned for November 19, 2019 at the Hilton Hotel in Milwaukee to mark this accomplishment. We anticipate welcoming the many people that have helped us grow and thrive in our commitment to care for Milwaukee youth, both old friends and new.
Highlighting the event will be our special guest, Mitch Albom, internationally renowned author, who will share his insights with his keynote address: "How One Life Touches Another".
