Kofi Hormeku named Nehemiah Economic Development, Inc. after the Nehemiah Houses and the Prophet Nehemiah. Nehemiah was tasked by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah was able to complete his mission through strong conviction, determination and a deep sense of duty to the nation, but above all to God. N.E.D echos Nehemiah's mission here in Ocean Hill-Brownsville to rebuild our community and empower our neighbor's through Educational and Economic opportunities.

Remember for my good, O my God, all that I have done for this people. Nehemiah 5:19
