SOS is excited to partner with

WHAT THEY DO: The Nehemiah Center supports at-risk families and their children by offering a safe, welcoming community. Children ranging from toddlers to teenagers go to the Center during the day to eat meals, play outside, do their homework, and be with their friends. The Nehemiah Center’s after school programs provide academic assistance to place an importance on education in the children’s lives. The goals of these programs are to teach the kids academically and to emphasize the significance of an education and their futures. The elementary program provides time and tutors to help the children with their homework, and the middle school program guides them on how to successfully go through school. The Center also institutes a time for worship, and teaches the kids about God and his unfailing love for them. Along with the physical community, the Nehemiah Center also forms a community relationally; the friendships the kids’ form at Nehemiah creates strong bonds that cause them and their families to come together as one family.

WHAT WE DO: As volunteers, EHS goes to the Nehemiah Center to tutor the kids and play with them. We spend time with them making crafts, playing on the playground, and keeping them entertained before going home. We also tutor the kids by helping them with their homework and teaching them concepts they do not understand. This impacts the kids immensely by making them feel loved and important and shows them how essential their education is

WHEN WE DO IT: EHS goes to the Nehemiah Center on Tuesdays after school twice a month.
