Nehemiah UCHA is a progressive housing association formed by the merger of Nehemiah Housing Association and United Churches Housing Association in 2007. The new organisation has a portfolio of up to 1000 properties serving the multicultural African Caribbean, Asian and European communities within the West Midlands. The Association provides homes for single people, families, couples and elderly people in Birmingham, Coventry,Dudley,Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.
As a landlord, we pride ourselves on being accountable and accessible to the communities we serve. As a Support Provider, we assist people to obtain and maintain tenancies, and make a major contribution in the prevention of homelessness.
We have responded to the needs of our tenants, by providing large homes for those with extended families, specially designed homes for people with disabilities or specific religious/cultural needs, and energy efficient homes to minimise the impact of fuel poverty.
Nehemiah UCHA is committed to serving the community and aims to build it into a thriving social unit in which people of all ethnic backgrounds feel at home and valued. The provision of good, affordable housing is the platform from which the Association has committed itself to the community at large, conveying the idea of value and a sense of caring.
