We celebrated our resident’s graduation ceremony at Nehemiah's Croydon House on Thursday, May 25th, a fantastic achievement for the seven men who will now start the transition into Nehemiah's second stage houses.

Throughout the programme, these residents have demonstrated unwavering commitment and determination in overcoming their addictions and addressing the challenges that held them back. Working closely with their key workers, they have successfully completed the 12-week programme, equipping themselves with essential life skills and forging a new path towards a brighter future.

The graduation ceremony was an inspiring and heart-warming event, where guests heard from the graduating residents as well as previous graduates who came along to tell them how Nehemiah had helped their lives. Guests were also treated to a musical performance by two of the residents, a real treat for all in attendance.

The event shined a spotlight on the personal journeys of the residents themselves, as they shared their stories and aspirations for the future. The presence of their families, Nehemiah staff, trustees, and friends of the residents added to the celebratory atmosphere, marking the importance of community support in the journey to recovery and transformation.
