On January 17, the Kiwanis Club of La Jolla granted Noah Homes $2,500 for energy saving appliances. Noah Homes is a nonprofit in Spring Valley that provides free housing and care to 70 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Noah Homes’ vision as a self-sustaining and recognized model of care includes solar panels that are already in the works and other environmentally friendly cost-saving measures. In addition to energy saving appliances, Noah Homes is taking steps in sustainability including planting a vegetable garden, installing solar panels and switching to environmentally friendly hand dryers.

“Kiwanis is all about giving back to those making a difference,” said Kiwanis Club Member Wally Matranga, who presented Noah Homes with the check. “In addition to Noah Homes’ role as an extended family member of our community, the organization shows tremendous financial stewardship, environmental consciousness and an exciting vision for the future – we are happy to show our support.” Matranga was first introduced to Noah Homes through a neighbor whose two sons are residents.
