No one should go to bed without a roof over their head.
Noah's Ark Housing helps to provide that roof!

Whether you’re looking for temporary, short- or long-term housing, we will work with you to provide affordable housing in a safe, clean, spacious environment.
Who We Serve
Our mission is to provide a safe, clean, spacious living environment for homeless, unhoused or displaced adults.

In order to achieve our mission, we believe the below values:
We recognize that housing is essential.
We treat all those we serve with dignity and respect.
We act with honesty and integrity.

I DIDN’T HAVE ANY MONEY BECAUSE MY ID AND SOCIAL SECURITY CARD WAS LOST IN THE HURRICANE AND THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION WOULDN’T RELEASE MY FUNDS WITHOUT IDENTIFICATION. NOAHS ARK TOOK ME IN WITH NO MONEY AND WORKED WITH ME UNTIL I WAS ABLE TO PAY THE FOLLOWING MONTH."
"I WAS SLEEPING IN MY CAR WHEN I HEARD ABOUT NOAH’S ARK. I GAVE THEM A CALL AND THEY WERE ABLE TO GET ME HOUSING IN A NICE HOME. I NOW HAVE A FULL TIME JOB AND I'M ON TRACK TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL."
