Since 1983, our mission as a nonprofit has been to provide exceptional residential services and opportunities to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This now includes advocacy and community partnership. Our goal is to maximize each individual’s independence in a community environment that fosters dignity and respect, as well as personal and spiritual growth.
Today, there are 70 men and women we like to call “the folks” celebrating life every day on these beautiful grounds. Eight homes each are named to reflect the strong Hispanic culture of San Diego, such as Casa de Flores and Casa de Felicidad. Noah Homes is an oasis of peace as well as a hub of activity, offering residents continued opportunities for personal growth and fulfillment. The folks are our inspiration in action, helping us to understand how we can best support all people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Residents leave their homes each weekday morning to work in the community with the support of a job coach, or to participate in a variety of community activities. Weekends are opportunities to enjoy San Diego and the outlying areas. There are plenty of choices every week for recreation, enrichment, and worship. Each member of a house is carefully selected based on their personal needs and ability to contribute to the house and to their housemates. Some favorites include ice skating, Padres baseball games, karaoke and bowling.
