Noah’s Nest was our first “in-town” initiative and first home for IDD individuals. Phase 1 was completed in 2003, and is currently home to three residents; phase 2 was completed in 2007 and currently houses eight residents. We also have a two-story garage with a second-floor apartment (affectionately called “The Penthouse”) that’s home to two residents.
Noah’s Nest is conveniently located in the East Lake Morton Historic District near downtown Lakeland, Florida. Shopping, restaurants, a library, an art museum, a community theater, employment opportunities, a college, several churches, a lovely park and gardens, and three beautiful lakes are all within walking distance. There’s also a public bus system accessible just a few blocks away.
All Noah’s Nest homes provide a private bedroom and bathroom, though “The Penthouse” is a 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartment. All homes (excluding the garage apartment) are handicapped friendly. Each has a variety of features, including roll-in showers, wide hallways and doors, and an open design to make day-to-day living easier for individuals using a wheelchair to assist with mobility.
