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