The NOAH community is spread from coast to coast, and while we cherish times when we are able to come together in person, more often than not we have to find creative ways to connect while geographically apart. We hope you’ll join us for one of many upcoming virtual events and opportunities to connect!
Inspired by our early pandemic “Social Distancing with Friends” series, as well as the heart-warming connections created during #VirtualNOAHCon2020, NOAH is delighted to introduce NOAH Connections, an ongoing series of virtual opportunities to bring the community together. An essential part of NOAH’s mission is to “provide a place where people with albinism and their families in the U.S. and Canada can find acceptance, support, and fellowship.” With the participation and engagement of community members like you, NOAH Connections will provide this opportunity for virtual “face to face” connections.
There are endless possibilities for NOAH fundraisers! Check out our fundraisers page to view upcoming virtual fundraisers, or learn more about hosting a fundraiser of your own.
NOAH Workshops are educational fundraisers offering opportunities for community members and professionals to come together and explore a variety of topics while supporting a great cause.
NOAH, in partnership with Lighthouse Guild, has developed a free parent support teleconference program as another way to bring the albinism community together. Parent Connections is an opportunity to talk with others who understand what you are going through as a parent of a child with albinism. The teleconferences are facilitated by a licensed professional and consist of a limited number of parents. This provides a safe and comfortable environment for you to voice concerns, ask questions, share your experiences, and hear from professional guest speakers.
The journey of grandparents of children with albinism is unique, and meeting others who are on the same journey can be very difficult. Grandparent Connections provides grandparents of children with albinism a place to connect and share their experiences with one another. Through a series of teleconferences Grandparents are provided an opportunity to connect with other grandparents, as well as specialists in the field of albinism from the comfort of your own home. The teleconferences are facilitated by a licensed professional and consist of a small group of grandparents. This provides a safe and comfortable environment for you to voice concerns, ask questions, share your experiences, and hear from professional guest speakers.
