All About Us!
The Nehemiah Program presently owns and manages a growing portfolio of rental units which are primarily reserved for special needs populations and low- to moderate-income individuals and families. These units are located on scattered sites throughout the Greater St. Louis area. It has been the policy of The Nehemiah Program to avoid concentrating too many units occupied by special needs tenants in any one location. Integrating these families into stable existing neighborhoods avoids the stigma often attached to a “project”.
The primary populations targeted for assistance include low- to moderate-income families, first-time homebuyers, persons with disabilities, individuals fleeing domestic violence, or low-income homeless or near homeless families in need of safe, adequate, and affordable housing.

- Meet quality, health, safety, and ethical standards.
