Community Resources (Non-Residential)


  • Food pantry: The Isaiah House Food Pantry serves members of the community with food bags to address an immediate need. Food bags are distributed based on a referral from another community agency such as churches, health centers, welfare, clinics, etc. Referrals can be in the form of a letter from the community agency on their letterhead or their internal vouchers. Please contact Latoya Anderson x3021 for any questions before making the trip!
