Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. Receives Generous Gift from Nehemiah Manufacturing to Empower Local Youth

CINCINNATI, OH – Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. is thrilled to announce the receipt of a generous gift of $33,500 from Nehemiah Manufacturing. This impactful contribution stems from the proceeds of Nehemiah Manufacturing’s 9th Annual Make a Difference Golf Classic, hosted at Western Hills Country Club. The funds were used to support Santa Maria’s events in 2023 and will be instrumental in furthering the objectives of Santa Maria’s Youth Development Program.

Santa Maria Community Services’ Youth Development Program is dedicated to nurturing the potential of youth aged 10-16 from Lower Price Hill. Through this initiative, participants engage in life and social-emotional skills groups, where they acquire vital skills such as peaceful conflict resolution, peer resistance, youth safety, bullying prevention, self-management, and goal-directed behavior. The program fosters youth mentoring and leadership through academic support, tutoring, age-specific activities, personal responsibility, and the cultivation of optimistic thinking skills. This multifaceted approach allows young individuals to participate in community service projects, while their families gain access to resources that promote family stability and address concerns that may challenge their well-being.

“We are profoundly grateful for the generous support of Nehemiah Manufacturing, who also serves as our 2023 Presenting Sponsor,” expressed H.A. Musser, Jr., President and CEO of Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. “This invaluable gift will directly impact the lives of the youth in Lower Price Hill, providing them with the support and hope necessary for their success.”

The partnership between Santa Maria Community Services, Inc. and Nehemiah Manufacturing exemplifies a commitment to fostering positive change in the community and offering families the opportunity to thrive.
