We appreciate everyone’s prayers and support during this challenging time.  If you would like to make a donation to help support our mission during COVID-19, you may do so by mailing your gift to 801 N Noyes Blvd; Saint Joseph, MO 64506, calling to make a donation over the phone or by clicking on the donate button below.  We are taking every precaution to keep our kids and staff safe.  We would like to thank our staff who volunteered to work our second quarantine of 2020.  They are selfless individuals, who have such a huge heart for our kids and our mission–we are incredibly lucky to call them part of our Noyes Home Family.

The Noyes Home For Children – A Safe Place To Call Home
Love lives here…
For more than 120 years, the Noyes Home has been a place where a child who is facing a family crisis feels safe, and can just be a child, until the family is able to get back on its feet. The Noyes Home is a place where a family facing eviction or a job loss can talk about their next steps with professionals while their children are cared for with kindness and compassion — for a few days, or a couple of weeks, while they find a solution. It’s where a teen finds friendship, security and a positive environment to continue attending high school if a parent has become incarcerated or is unable to care for him.

We need this home…
Experiences with homelessness, poverty, substance abuse, imprisonment, and illness can affect any family. Sometimes the stress and consequences of those hardships can affect children so intensely that parents realize they need to find a temporary safe place for their children. Noyes Home offers that safe and nurturing home-away-from-home. Infants, children and teens can live at the Noyes Home for as long as needed while a family strives to find solutions, with service provided until a child turns 18. There is no financial obligation to the family.

The Noyes Home is, above all, a home.
