Isaiah House in Action

Due to dramatic cuts in government funding, Isaiah House needs your financial support now more than ever. To see first-hand how your contribution will make a difference, visit our Donations page  

Isaiah House offers many opportunities for community involvement - from sponsoring pizza nights, running life skills workshops and help with fundraising. Find out how you and your family can participate.

Our mission is to reduce the prevalence of homelessness, hunger and unemployment among families, young adults and individuals living in Essex County NJ. Learn more about what we do
