Comments about “NEHEMIAH CENTER, THE

  • I volunteered at the Nehemiah Center for two years. It was delightful to be able to work one-on-one with a child who needed homework help and to be able to develop a relationship with her over time. We always had some time for just chatting or for playing a game when homework was finished. I miss her, but have visited and she is doing well.
