Mission and Philosophy

“Everyone had a big heart. That’s exactly what I needed — a head start and a helping hand.”

-Brian, NOAH client


The mission of the NOAH Project is to empower low income and homeless Detroiters to achieve stability by serving as the first step on the journey to self sufficiency.

The NOAH Project operates a Community Center in downtown Detroit for people living on the streets. Offering lunch four days a week, one-on-one social services, physical health counseling, empowerment-based programming, and emergency needs, we strive to build a family support system for those who come to us.

We believe that change comes through positive, trusting relationships. At NOAH, we support individuals by developing trusting relationships founded upon acceptance — acceptance of who that person is. When acceptance is combined with compassion and honesty, it builds trust. By creating an environment founded on trusting relationships, we develop a family for people so they have the support necessary to change and grow.

We build all of our services on our mission and core values:

i. Welcome all people with hospitality, recognize their dignity, and practice acceptance
ii. Build long-term trusting relationships
iii. Patient, holistic care
iv. Personal growth through empowerment

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.
