Wellness Counseling

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

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.
