More about NOAH

NOAH (Neighbourhood Old Age Homes) is a model of housing and service for the poor, needy and vulnerable old people in South Africa. NOAH has 13 homes, their houses are in residential areas which are spread over eight areas (Woodstock, Atlantis, Rondebosch East, Athlone, Elsies River, Khayelitsha, Parow and Stellenbosch). NOAH, since it was founded in 1981, has developed an exemplary model of health, home and happiness, and has been a good way of meeting a burgeoning need for safe, affordable housing for the elderly.
