The Nehemiah Project was founded in 1988 to serve the homeless in northern Michigan. We are a faith based non-profit organization providing emergency housing for men, women and children. We not onlyprovide food and shelter but we focus on building new healthy relationships. The Nehemiah Project ministry was named after and modeled after the Old Testament prophet Nehemiah who helped to rebuild the walls around Jerusalem and was a model of hope, faithfulness, caring and motivation. Nehemiah means, "The Lord has comforted".
