RAISING AWARENESS

'Nehemiah', the miniseries.

 
 
 

The Nehemiah' 4 part mini series was created to wake the world up to a national crisis, one that often goes unnoticed, much like the tens of thousands of young people who live in our direct view, yet are the forgotten ones, reminders of our failure as a nation to address this overwhelming issue.

Yet, 'Nehemiah' is also a story of hope and resilience, one that will take you on a journey of deeper understanding and awareness of the challenge ahead and how you can become a part of the solution.

The series unmasks a foster care system that is broken and has allowed sobering statistics for it’s transitioning youth; one in five people will be homeless after age eighteen; only half will be employed by age twenty four; three percent will earn a college degree, and seventy one percent of woman will be pregnant by age twenty one.

Nehemiah’s mission is to ultimately help change how America views foster children; with it’s mantra being a “Call to Action” for the millions of American’s who are in a position to help. The Nehemiah mini series and movement will inspire people just as Nehemiah from the Bible did, as we broaden the old adage of “It takes a village to raise a child” to “It takes a village, a community, a city, and a nation to raise a child”.
