The Noble Foundation
Connecting people, sharing knowledge, empowering communities.
To ensure all marginalized communities are able to gain the connections, knowledge and empowerment to build a more just, equitable, and healthy society. We support the idea that “the comm’UNITY’ knows what the comm’UNITY’ needs” and has the ability, tools and power to respond and organize together.
We envision a community where all people are inspired to live, work and play through their natural leadership abilities by recognizing comm”UNITY” strengths and power.
- honor of all cultures, lifestyles, and beliefs as necessary voices to ensure our work produces safety and respect towards all communities.
- committed to ensuring all vulnerable and traumatized community members are addressed without judgement.
- respect to diversity of thoughts, abilities, perspective, and the environment of all individuals.
- Passion for ensuring our service in the community is delivered with integrity and excellence.
The work we do in the community consists of four cores.
