Peer Support Volunteers

Ambassadors of Trust

NOAH is blessed to have as part of its family a group of Peer Support Volunteers. These are individuals who are currently homeless or who have experienced homelessness and came to NOAH initially as clients. Their commitment to the program and desire to give back has led them to volunteer, helping to facilitate the Community Center. Participating in weekly group meetings, individual counseling, team building events, and assisting with Bag Lunch, this group of individuals defines the NOAH family. Committed to personal growth and to supporting one another, they are invaluable ambassadors to participants who are hesitant to trust.
Our Peer Support Volunteers continually help NOAH grow and change, all with the best interests of our clients at the forefront. At their weekly meetings, they discuss new ideas, challenges, and opportunities for growth for NOAH. Responsible for preparing the Community Center with drinks, sandwiches, and activities, they provide a welcoming and supportive space for people.

For people who are truly living on the streets, getting into housing can be very difficult and oftentimes overwhelming. However, Street Outreach engages these individuals and builds trusting relationships with them, allowing NOAH to support these individuals as they go through the arduous housing process. Of the 106 individuals Street Outreach has engaged, over 60 of them, roughly 56%, have been housed or connected to a housing agency as a result of Street Outreach. It's the smiles on people's faces like James, who just received his keys, that remind us of the importance of meeting people where they are, and building trust and companionship. ...
