Noel Haacker, Founder

Renesting’s founder and former executive director, Noel Haacker, has answered a calling to serve the homeless in a way that uniquely matches up with her 30 years as a professional Interior Designer. Noel owned and operated Noel Interior Design, Inc. for more than 20 years. She also volunteered 16 years as Interior Design Coordinator for St. Jude Dream Home’s model program which has now been replicated across the United States. Married for 30+ years and the mother of 3 grown children and four grandchildren, Noel possesses a unique combination of organizational and people skills and a seemingly endless desire to serve those in need. Recently nominated for the American Society of Interior Designers prestigious national Design for Humanity Award, she continues to use her design skills to serve those in need.
