Elizabeth (Liz) Dixon is the current First Vice President of NOAH. She represents NOAH member organization Heart, Love &Soul, where she serves as Caseworker. She also serves as HUD Service Coordinator for both Wrobel and Spallino Towers. These positions help her to live out her passion for the people who feel they have no voice and some who have lost hope.
Born and raised in Niagara Falls, NY, Liz currently resides in neighboring Erie County but her heart and passion are for her Niagara Falls Community. She has worked in the region as a social worker for 31 years, with career experience at Niagara County Head Start and the Department of Social Service. Liz has served on the policy council board for Head Start, Kalfas Magnet School Advisory Committee and the National Committee for School Desegregation. In addition to serving on NOAH’s board as Vice President, she is also a member of the Homeless Coalition.
Liz’s passion for social justice is rooted in her strong faith. She was a faithful member of Christ Redemption Tabernacle Church for 19 years, serving that congregation in various capacities including as a Trustee, Women’s Ministry President, Altar Worker, Media Ministry, and received her ministry license through the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World (PAW). She currently attends The Chapel – both the Getzville and Niagara Falls campuses – where she serves as a greeter and set-up person and co-hosts a community in-home Bible-study group. She holds a certificate in Biblical Counseling from Houghton College through courses held at The Chapel.
Liz’s passion for her community and its citizens, and her dedication to social justice, brought her to serve on NOAH’s board. Her top priority is to ensure that the voice of the people is heard and social injustices are eliminated.
