Nehemiah House

Nehemiah House is a half-way house for women who have been in prison. We provide biblically centered education, counseling, and life skills training. Residents are required to take part in Celebrate Recovery meetings, attend church, and participate in weekly Bible study.

In March 2004, the first home was purchased on the near east side of Indianapolis. The home was completely restored through the volunteer labor and opened in April of 2005. The video from November, 2013 above shows the second house being rehabilitated. It will open in January, 2014.
