A Message of Gratitude

NOAHH is a community of communities. To build a home, so many communities come together: staff, AmeriCorps, volunteers, donors and sponsors, local vendors and partners, and, of course, partner families are all part of the wide network of people who make each house possible. Without you, over 600 families might not have achieved their goals of homeownership.

To our partner families…

Thank you for having the courage and determination to change your lives. Your hard work is essential to our mission. If no one showed up and said “I deserve better,” our affiliate would not exist, and the work we do would be impossible. Thank you for your sweat equity that helps keep our sites running. Thank you for supporting us through your mortgages, which help fund other peoples’ homes. Thank you for being our best advocates. Thank you for making every sore thumb and difficult day worth it.

To our volunteers…

Thank you for taking the time to help build homes or support the ReStore or other NOAHH projects. Thank you for volunteering in the pouring rain or the sweltering sun, during your spring breaks, or on your family vacation. Thank you for choosing NOAHH for your school’s community service project or your company’s team-building day. Thank you for making affordable housing a priority in your lives and doing the work necessary to keep it affordable.

To our donors and sponsors…

Thank you for your gifts that fuel our mission. Your support raises the funds for land, tools, and other necessities in the construction and repair of homes. You’ve changed lives with your gifts, bringing change for generations by supporting homebuyers as they lift themselves out of the cycle of renting.

To our ReStore shoppers…

Thank you for choosing the ReStore for your furniture, appliances, building materials, and more. Thank you for sharing what you found and what you make of it. Thank you for supporting our mission and helping to keep these materials out of the landfill. Your support builds neighborhoods.

To our AmeriCorps…

Thank you for taking a year–or more!–out of your lives to give back. Thank you for becoming leaders on site who help us coordinate volunteers and build homes. Thank you for the work you put in to change lives. The work you do now will last lifetimes.

To our local partners…

Thank you for helping us spread the word, for supporting our mission in every way possible, and for connecting us with the volunteers, donors, and future homeowners who are the core of our family.

Thank you all for your support.
