NOAS CELEBRATED KAITLIN'S ADOPTION

It was a great day for this sweet young lady! Kaitlyn was adopted on July 18th, and NOAS couldn’t be happier for her and her family!

Our NOAS team is working with limited financial resources to find foster youth support, connections, and families.

As a result of last year's loss, we are in need of your support.

To keep our organization running and to provide resources and support for our foster youth and families, we rely on donations and fundraising. We appreciate your generosity and every donation. Consider supporting NOAS in one of the following ways.

HOME TEAM CELEBRATION SHENANIGANS AT THE 9

Rumor has it there’s a peppy joint called the Metropolitan at The 9 in Cleveland that’s the real bee’s knees.


Join us for a fundraising Prohibition Era full of drinks, dinner, a reverse raffle with cash prizes, a silent/chance auction, sideboards, a costume contest, and other fun surprise shenanigans.

EXCITING NEWS

from Bridges

There were some young adults who were able to obtain their driver's licenses and even buy a car. The ability for these young adults to travel to school or work is a huge step towards stability and self-sufficiency. This newfound sense of independence helps to increase their sense of responsibility and maturity.

TRAINING CLASSES BEGINNING

Are you ready to make a difference by providing a caring, temporary home for foster youth? We recommend taking our virtual pre-service training classes as a next step beginning September 6th.
