A COMMUNITY FOR FAMILIES AND YOUTH ... PROVIDING SHELTER FROM THE STORM
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?
ISAIAH HOUSE IS PROUD TO ANNOUCE.....
Our Executive Director, Zammeah Bivins-Gibson and Isaiah House have been recognized by the members of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (NCNW), Section of the Oranges for our service and dedication to the community and to Essex County NJ.
NCNW will recognize Mrs. Bivins-Gibson and Isaiah House at their Annual Luncheon on Saturday, May 18, 2013.
The National Council of Negro women, Inc. was founded by educator and political leader Mary McLeod Bethune who envisioned it to be an "organization of organizations" that would represent the national and international concerns of Black women. It would also give Black women the opportunity to realize their goals for social justice and human rights through united, constructive action.
NCNW believes Isaiah House embodies the vision and the Mission of our NCNW.
Isaiah House is proud to announce that we have been awarded the HOPWA grant award to provide housing and related services to people living with HIV/AIDS during the 2012 program year (January 1, 2013-December 31, 2013). This funding is part of a federal grant award made possible by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to the Newark Eligible Metropolitan Service Area (NEMSA).
