A Community Built on Friendship And Support for Adults With Special Needs

We welcome you to our website and are delighted to share our story with you. Please check out our history, see how we work with our community of special needs VIPs and join our growing membership!!!

Noah’s Nest & The Villages at Noah’s Landing are the culmination of dreams of five sets of parents of young adults with special needs. When these parents met over 15 years ago while watching their children take part in sporting activities, they discussed their concerns for the future of their children – where would they live, work and interact with others once their parents were no longer around to oversee their care?

A look at the limited facilities available at that time reinforced their worries and increased their determination to seek an alternative – an inclusive community where adults with special needs could be safe, enjoy a variety of activities and build lifelong friendships with others.

Noah’s Ark was founded in 1997. The first homes at Noah’s Nest in Lakeland were constructed between 2002 and 2007 with Noah’s Landing opening in mid 2016. There are currently 100+ residents living independently with the support of their fellow residents, family, friends and caregivers. They all enjoy an active lifestyle and, most importantly, continue to develop the skills needed to ensure independent living.
