Isaiah House is a supportive environment for adults whose lives have been impacted by homelessness as well as by severe and persistent mental illness.
Isaiah House has three primary components: drop-in services like showers, laundry, phone access, and more; psychosocial support through group work, social activities, and positive interactions with staff and peers; and membership, where established participants work closely with staff to plan activities, perform administrative duties, and provide support to new participants.
Some of the services offered at Isaiah House include animal therapy, field trips, healthy cooking workshops, anger management, adult groups, bingo, advocacy, and meditation.
