The Noyes Home is a place founded by love and generosity more than 100 years ago; that spirit of love and caring is stronger than ever today. However, our needs are also greater as more families are facing crisis, like job loss, eviction or food insecurity. Last year, more than 120 children were served by the Noyes Home across all age groups.
For the past century, the Noyes Home has cared for children with private resources, but as our needs continue grow, we are inviting the community to help “Open Our Doors Wider” with our first ever Capital Campaign. Every gift received — such as monetary donations, time, estate or planned gifts — helps a child find a safe, nurturing “home” while their family works through a tough time. Now that we have opened the Crisis Nursery, your gifts may also help save lives and prevent child abuse in our region.
