We are 30 this year!
We are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year – and to mark our big birthday we are hosting 30 events and activities across the region throughout 2019.
These range from tea parties at our various retirement schemes through to staff celebrations and a fundraising dinner and church thanksgiving service.
“Given all we’ve achieved over the past 30 years, we definitely plan to celebrate our birthday in style.” Llewellyn Graham, Chief Executive.
Over the past three decades, we have grown dramatically grown as a community-based Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) housing provider, having started life in 1989 as Nehemiah Housing Association (Church of God of Prophecy) Ltd before merging with United Churches Housing Association in 2007. Following a rebrand in 2018, we are now known as Nehemiah Housing.
“Nehemiah Housing has expanded so much during the last 30 years and, after taking on a further 118 properties in Wolverhampton in December last year, now has a total property portfolio of 1,243 homes in the West Midlands. " Llewellyn Graham.
“We provide homes and support to more than 4,000 people across the region."
“As well as supporting our residents in their homes, we pride ourselves on supporting the local communities. This is why we’re involved in regeneration projects and encourage enterprise to boost the local economy – and why so many of our 30th anniversary events are based in the local neighbourhoods.”
This won’t be the first time we have celebrated a big anniversary by doing something out of the ordinary.
“Five years ago, to mark our 25th anniversary, we released a history book which takes an in-depth look at the association from its creation in 1989 and first retirement scheme, Plummers House, right through to the modern day." Llewellyn Graham
“Five years on, we are ready to celebrate again, with more properties and more families to support – and we look forward to all that the next 30 years bring and the many more individuals and families we can help.”
