NOAH, the Neighborhood of Affordable Housing, is an East Boston based community development corporation structured to collaborate with and support residents and communities in their pursuit of affordable housing strategies, environmental justice, community planning, leadership development, and economic development opportunities. NOAH eagerly partners with those residents, neighborhood entities, municipalities or groups that share similar values and goals in order to improve standards of living, build community, and create social/economic opportunities, especially for low and moderate-income persons, families and disadvantaged groups or areas. NOAH's goals and programs are built on a commitment to equality, fairness, diversity and respect for all people.
Neighborhood of Affordable Housing, Inc. (NOAH) has entered its twenty-ninth year as a bilingual multi-service non-profit community development corporation . It is a United Way of Massachusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley organization and a chartered member of NeighborWorks America. NOAH serves the extended Greater Boston region, yet retaining a grassroots focus on the neighborhood of East Boston. NOAH works on creating and preserving affordable housing opportunities and building safe and healthy neighborhoods for those most in need and others challenged by today's housing market. NOAH's clientele is comprised of disadvantaged low- and moderate-income families. NOAH works towards achieving the National Housing Goal of "a decent home and suitable living environment" for as many underprivileged individuals as it can, both locally and regionally. We look to accomplish this through an increasing number of social and environmental benefit programs: counseling families on buying and renting affordable homes and on avoiding foreclosure, building and redeveloping properties into affordable homes, maintaining our own rental housing property portfolio, helping the elderly and handicapped with low-cost home repairs, focusing on affordable rental preservation initiatives, and developing significant environmental and neighborhood restoration programs.
