Sponsor a Lunch

History

In 1976, members of Central United Methodist Church saw that people in their community needed food. Responding to this basic need, church members began offering a Bag Lunch to anyone who came to their door twice per week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This program, now nearly 40 years old, remains the cornerstone of the NOAH Project.

In 1999, realizing that people needed more than just a lunch, Central partnered with Family Service, Inc. and created the NOAH Project (Networking, Organizing, and Advocating for the Homeless). NOAH began offering social services and physical health counseling.

In 2003, NOAH was transferred to the Central United Methodist Church of Detroit Community Development Corporation, our 501(c) 3. In 2014, responding to the coldest and snowiest winter in Detroit’s history, NOAH opened wide its doors and created the NOAH Community Center. We extended our hours and are now open to people from 9:00am to 2:00pm Monday through Thursday. NOAH also expanded its Bag Lunch Program to serve lunch on all four days. This growth has spurred the creation of the Community Center.

The NOAH Project on Facebook

Yesterday, we had the privilege of sharing our lunch hour with a group of college students from Saginaw Valley State University. These students were all from various health and human services programs, such as nursing, social work, and health care administration.

In our lunch discussion, our staff shared the stories that happen here at NOAH and the services that we offer so that these students might gain a glimpse of the joys and challenges that they will find in these fields.

We love to share the stories of transformation and change that happen at NOAH, and how you can be a part of that story. Contact us at info@noahprojectdetroit.org to schedule a date for us to come speak at your church, mosque, school, or civic group.

We say it often, but only because it's so true: NOAH could not operate in the ways that it does without the help of volunteers. This past Wednesday staff, volunteers, and board members came together to celebrate all of the work that we do together!

Thank you to all of our volunteers! If you're interesting in joining us as a volunteer, check out our online sign up calendar to see when available dates are.

Isaac is excited about these donated wash cloths! Donated items, such as wash cloths, help make sure that we have hygiene and clothing items to offer our guests when they come through our doors. Plus, donated supplies are a great way to support NOAH if you live far away or are unable to come down to volunteer with the Bag Lunch Program. As we settle into warmer weather, we could use your help with stocking up on the following items:

- wash cloths
- underwear
- conditioner
- lotion

Donations can be mailed to 23 E. Adams Detroit, MI 48226 or you can drop off donations Monday-Friday 9am-4pm. If you have any questions, contact Isaac Dunn at idunn@noahprojectdetroit.org.
