EAST ORANGE, NJ - After having served over 200K of the most desperate individuals in Essex County, Isaiah House will soon be getting a much needed renovation. For the 100+ residents of the family shelter it means that the roof over their heads and the rooms the congregate in daily will be getting a New Jersey version of “Extreme Home Makeover”.
Led by Isaiah House Board President, Kristen Beveridge, and thanks to the generous help and donations from a number of local volunteer designers and architects, they’ve kicked off the renovation project, Happy Spaces, which will bring massive upgrades to the East Orange shelter. To date, the team has raised close to $35,000 to refresh and update these spaces with new furniture, paint, lighting and accessories.
I’d love to invite you to check out the before, during and after of the renovation to check out how the local community is coming together to help those that need it the most. I can also introduce you to some of the residents and Isaiah House’s Executive Director who can talk about the excitement and gratefulness they’re feeling about this project.
The rooms are set to be completed the first week of June with a Reveal Party scheduled for Friday, June 9th that will include the residents, designers, and key sponsors of the upgrades.
