Noah Dalbey, hometown Silver Spring, MD, will be joining the MHCCV as their VISTA member from 2022 to 2023. Noah graduated from The College of William & Mary in May of 2022 with a Bachelors in Sociology where he cultivated interests in working in social justice, affordable housing, and community service.
From 2021 to 2022 Noah was a Research Affiliate for W&M’s Local Black Histories Project, and was a part of the team that worked collaboratively with The Village Initiative – a local nonprofit – to produce a educational website (“The Local Black Histories Project”) which seeks to increase the accessibility and comprehensiveness of Williamsburg’s local history. Prior to attending W&M, from 2017 to 2018, Noah served a 10 month term of service with AmeriCorps NCCC in the South West region of the US.
This year with NCCC initiated a desire to work with nonprofits in the future, and encouraged Noah to join the VISTA program after graduating in 2022. He is now very excited to be serving in AmeriCorps again, and to be working for the MHCCV and their crucial mission of improving the quality of life for mobile home residents across Virginia. Noah is especially looking forward to doing outreach and engaging in person with the residents of Virginia’s mobile home parks.
