Florence and Paul Marback Wellness Center

Partners Navigating Healthcare

The Florence and Paul Marback Wellness Center currently operates on Mondays and Thursdays from 10:30am-2:00pm. The Center is staffed by volunteer retired nurses and offers physical health counseling to our clients. Providing access to health information and care, these nurses fill a desperately needed gap in the care for those experiencing homelessness. In addition to health education, they are able to assist with prescription payments, basic medical supplies, and assistance in navigating a complex and daunting medical system.
Dedicated to the memory of Florence and Paul Marback, these two shining members of our family volunteered for many years at the Bag Lunch program and were loved by all who met them. The compassionate care that each gave to one another in their final months was a testament to the power of love and family. The Wellness Center carries on that mission of compassion and dignity to the work that we do here at NOAH.
For more information about the Wellness Center or how to volunteer, contact Jo Anna Risk, Wellness Center Coordinator!


 

Covenant Community Care

Increasing Access to Care


With the implementation of the Healthy Michigan Plan in April 2014, access to healthcare became available for thousands of uninsured people across the state, including many NOAH participants. Responding, NOAH partnered with Covenant Community Care to assist individuals gain health insurance, many for the first time in their lives.
But health insurance isn’t enough. Access to quality care that understands the health needs of the homeless population is also required. In order to provide this link, members of Covenant’s Homeless Outreach Team come to NOAH every Wednesday, help enroll and navigate the health insurance system, and then transport up to five people to their Michigan Ave. clinic to see a doctor or dentist. This partnership has improved the quality of care received by NOAH clients.

The NOAH Project on Facebook

James has been a big part of the NOAH family since last September. James is one of the 106 individuals engaged through our Street Outreach, which began in April 2016. 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. ...
