About Isaiah House
Isaiah House has been a community fixture since 1988. Their mission is to reduce the prevalence of homelessness, hunger and unemployment throughout Essex County and more specifically, within the Oranges and Newark.
As the brain child of an alliance between the Community Service Council of the Oranges and Maplewood (a division of United Way of Essex and West Hudson), the Junior League of the Oranges and Short Hills, and the Concerned Clergy of East Orange, Isaiah House remains the only shelter in East Orange and provides temporary and permanent lodging, food, social and financial services, as well as comfort and hope for families and individuals every year.
They are dedicated to those families and individuals who are considered “most fragile” – that is, those who have been devastated by unemployment, illness, drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, fires and crises. Isaiah House offers a variety of support services to family members, including life skills training, instructions in household and money management, job search assistance, tutoring, medical referrals, and on-site drug and alcohol support groups.
Isaiah House works diligently to ensure that the family unit remains in tack. That is, both a mom and dad, husband and wife, just mom or dad as heads of household or whatever the family make up, they can remain together with their children at Isaiah House rather than having to separate and stay in multiple places. Their unique approach is based on a firm belief that individual progress and development is enhanced and augmented by the assistance of loved ones.
Their shelter programs serve: teenage girls/boys, disabled single women, women living with HIV/AIDS, mommy and me (border babies) and families in addition to an on-site day care for the residents and a food pantry for the community. Isaiah House also provides prevention funds to prevent homelessness, rental subsidies to people who are disabled, people living with HIV/AIDS and the high functioning mentally challenged.
