NOAH THANKS PALM BEACH COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FOR MORE THAN 18 YEARS OF SUPPORT

Since its inception, NOAH’s greatest contributor has been the Palm Beach County Department of Housing and Community Development (H&CD). H&CD recently awarded $110,000 to NOAH for hurricane repairs to residential buildings.

H&CD has funded many programs and initiatives for NOAH. Its contributions range in the millions of Dollars. Programs funded by H&CD include the development and construction of residential units, staffing of NOAH’s programs, and most recently, hurricane repairs. "NOAH is one of the most effective organizations in the Glades to provide housing for migrant workers and low income families," says Remar Harvin, Director of H&CD. "NOAH has been great for the community and we are very supportive of that. They are a very visible organization."
