Providing shelter, nourishment and support to Essex County's most fragile families and individuals since 1988.

Urgent Needs

We are in need of emergency funds to ensure that we are able to keep our staff and residents safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. We house individuals who are immuno-comprimised and need to take every precaution possible.

The Isaiah House staff maintains an up to date Amazon Wish List for all urgent need items. 

Please visit Amazon to purchase and ship directly to Isaiah House.
