Are you a social worker helping pregnant teens with nowhere to go? Do you know of new mothers who need baby-sitting services so they can learn new skills? Are you trying to get your cases to kick a drug habit?
Whether you are on staff at a hospital, work for child services or welfare, or are a social worker looking for more information, contact Isaiah House...we are here to help. We offer a variety of residential and community programs designed to meet the needs of our Essex County community. Our mission is to assist homeless families and individuals throughout Essex County by providing shelter and support services which enable them to become fully functional. We are a community for families and youth--providing shelter from the storm.
Project Homeless Connect Day 2014
On March 27, 2014, Isaiah House participated in Project Homeless Connect Day along with several other social service agencies from Essex County. Our goal was not only to connect with the homeless, but to provide them with information and resources. We also didn't want them to leave empty handed, so we made up 150 bags with a variety of goodies in each bag. To honor our commitment of reducing the spread of HIV and other STD's and to discourage teen pregnancy, every bag included a condom. Our staff enjoyed networking with other agencies as well as sharing with the people we love to serve.

Time for Shout Outs: Check out how the community is helping Isaiah House:
Sojourner Truth Middle School
The National Junior Honor Society Students of Sojourner Truth Middle School raised funds for the residents of Isaiah House by having a Valentine's Day Candy Sale. We recognize that there are a number of things they could have done with the funds, but they chose to give back and we applaud them for that. Kudos to you Sojourner Truth students and faculty!!
We'd like to give a special shout out to Investor's Bank for believing in what we do at Isaiah House by granting us funds to support the provision of life skills to our teens. We are so grateful that they understand the importance of these much needed skills.
Thank you Investors!!
