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
