    Noah’s Story

    Noah is one of few children in our program who does have both a mother and a father. We have kept an eye on him since he was a baby because we knew his home situation was unstable. His father is an alcoholic who has a long history of abusive behavior toward both Noah, his sister and his mother.

    Eventually, in 2013, Noah’s father forced his mother out of the house and she left Noah alone to fend for himself. Noah’s father did not take any responsibility for him either.  He would leave Noah alone without food or any other basic necessities while he was out drinking all day, not to return until very late in the evening. Since Noah was locked out of the house without food or water, he had to look for help elsewhere and he found it in a group of older street boys who were doing drugs and stealing.

    With little hope of a future, Noah came to Peace for Paul. He is now a happy student who loves story time and coloring.
