Isaiah House

Isaiah House is a non-profit agency for children and families in Essex County, New Jersey. Having opened their doors in 1988, Isaiah House remains the only shelter in East Orange and provides temporary lodging, food, social and financial services, as well as comfort and hope for over 100 families a year. Isaiah House is dedicated to those families who are considered "most fragile" - that is, those families who have been devastated by unemployment, illness, drug addiction, teenage pregnancy, fires and other crises. In addition to housing, Isaiah House offers a variety of support services to family members, as well as an onsite NA support group. More than 60 percent of families, who have been residents in Isaiah House programs, have successfully relocated to permanent housing.
