Founded in June of 2017, the Noah Center, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is a one-stop shop providing extensive programs for youth in and out-of-school and those aging out of foster care, along with adults looking for education, health, recreation and support services. The Noah Center also provides programming for parolees and probationers seeking re-entry into the community.
