Community Awareness Festival Fun
On August 22, 2014, Isaiah House along with Walgreens, Newark Community Health Centers and a host of other organizations dedicated to the well being of others participated in the Annual NJCRI Community Festival. This fun event was open to the community to bring awareness to the resources in the area for individuals with HIV/AIDS. Along with music, games, free raffles and giveaways, NJCRI provided Back To School supplies for all the children! Thanks to the New Jersey Department of Health, Isaiah House staff Mrs. Patricia Terry and Ms. Marcelyn Hayes, were able to give out over 100 condoms to attendees to stop the spread of not only HIV, but also other sexually transmitted diseases within Essex County.
