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.

NOAH is committed to helping low- and moderate-income senior and disabled homeowners remain comfortably in their homes by providing affordable home repair services, including minor repairs, emergency repairs, and senior home rehabilitation. To qualify seniors must be over 62 years of age, live in Charlestown, East Boston, or the North End or West End of Boston, occupy or own a 1-4 family property, and have incomes below certain limits. NOAH fulfills over 300 service requests annually. There are no other non-profits that serve senior citizens with home repairs, safety issues, and handicapped accessibility needs in our communities; our SHS Program ensures that seniors remain integral members of our neighborhoods, both contributing to and benefiting from greater contact with the younger generations. Seniors are often neglected and forgotten in present-day American society. Seniors make up 22.7% of all low-income peoples, while making up only 13.7% of the overall U.S. population; more than half fall into the category of Extremely Low- Income, with less than 30% of the average median income (AMI) and over 6 million are characterized as having a severe housing cost burden.
