On Monday 29th November NOAH Enterprise n High Town took the decision 
that someone had to provide some form of emergency shelter for people 
in Luton sleeping rough. There is no way they can be left to sleep 
outside when it is this cold so NOAH Enterprise opened a winter 
shelter for those who are street homeless.

offering hope and support to people struggling against homelessness 
and exclusion.
Practical pathways out of homelessness for people of all faiths and none

NOAH is a faith based organisation and our work is motivated by the 
Christian principles of love and charity. However, we never link 
charity with evangelism and you do not need to be a Christian to work 
for, support or receive help from NOAH.

Help for the whole person
There is no quick fix solution to homelessness. People become and 
stay homeless for a number of reasons and, although an important 
aspect of our work is finding permanent accommodation, simply putting 
a roof over someone's head is rarely enough to correct the chain of 
events that led them into homelessness in the first place.

NOAH works with the whole person to find permanent and individually 
tailored pathways out of homelessness. Our support is offered to both 
homeless and severely excluded people at a pace and level suited to 
each individual.
Our support ranges from a hot meal and medical care to NVQ accredited 
training and we continue to provide this support long after permanent 
accommodation has been found.

To find out more about our work and the people we support, our Our 
Work and Our Mission & Vision pages are a great place to start.
