28 Days of Giving
Isaiah House is so honored to have been included in the 28 Days Projects generous giving. 28 days generates donations of sanitary products and makes kits to distribute to women in homeless shelters or women who are simply in need of the products. We are so grateful that they donated enough kits to provide to ALL of the women of Isaiah House. Thank you so much Jamy Barton and all the members of the 28 Days Project for making the lives of our ladies a little less complicated.
A Ray of Sunshine
Some days you need to be reminded of why you stay in social services when the job can many times feel thankless and overwhelming. Three of our wonderful staff were reminded that they are making a difference in someone’s life. One of the consumers of our HOPWA program was so grateful for the work and advocacy put in by Rasheedah, Machell and Nancy that he decided to send each a BEAUTIFUL vase of flowers to brighten their day! And the cherry on top was that the flowers were delivered by a former consumer who insisted that his employer allow him to personally deliver all orders coming to Isaiah House. What an absolutely fulfilling moment. Just when we think we’ve had enough, this is just the magic we need to keep on keeping on. -Z. Bivins-Gibson, Executive Director
