Our mission is to end homelessness in western Rockingham County, NH. We believe that second only to food, housing is a basic need. All New Hampshire families should have adequate nutrition and housing as a foundation for a productive life. Along with shelter we will provide supportive homeless services for a successful transition to sustainable housing. For the housing insecure, homeless prevention coaching/counseling will be provided.
We are committed to adding at least one new affordable housing unit each year in western Rockingham County. Our long term goal is to provide various forms of shelter in western Rockingham County for those in need and to provide the supportive services so our clients can succeed and maintain a productive and healthy life style. Currently we house six families in Isaiah units, four families receive rent assistance and eight others regularly receive food, utility, and/or transportation assistance.
"Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the homeless poor into your house." Isaiah 58:6-7

In honor of the late High Sheriff of Rockingham County and founding board member Michael Downing, we established a humanitarian community service award. Senate President Chuck Morse, current board member Michael Carney and members of the Downing Family presented the award to this year’s recipient Dr. Michael W. Delahanty, Salem Superintendent of Schools.
A panel of local educators was the information focus of the evening. Panel included Jen Marino, Principal Sandown Elementary School, Maura Palmer, Assistant Superintendent Salem Schools, and Ambassador James Smith, Dean of the College of Engineering, Technology, and Aeronautics.
The evening also included dinner, cash bar, music, speakers, raffles, silent auction, and time to mingle with guests and each other. Most of all it was an evening raise much needed funds for families in need.

Dear Isaiah 58 Supporters:
Together with all of you, Isaiah 58 works throughout the year to ease the burden on our most vulnerable families and individuals. Your support has brought as a very long way since we housed our first family in 2015.
This year we provided housing and support to more than a dozen families! We owe you a huge thank you for the role you played. Nonetheless, as the holiday season approaches, we are mindful of the anxiety that many of our client families experience when they struggle to find the resources for a special meal at Thanksgiving or to give their young children a reason to smile on Christmas morning. The good news is that by once again working together, we plan to launch a new program this year to support these families in need. As you likely know we already provide Thanksgiving “baskets” each year and plan to again (last year these baskets were delivered to 20 local families and fed 119 people)! The needs around the Holidays are great, and we want to extend our support around Christmas as well for 2017.
The new program we are introduced was “Adopt a Family for the Holidays”. For this initiative, we matched supporters with a family in need, provided a “wish list” of appropriate gifts, and then worked with you to arrange delivery of the gifts that you purchase. We expected that your financial commitment for helping a family would be approximately $250. Thanks to our board member Carrie Wieland and those of you who were part of the program their were over 100 children who had smiles on their faces last Christmas.
We know this program required you to shop, wrap, and write personalized notes, but past participants in similar programs all tell us that they like the direct connection to a local family better than one where you know nothing of the recipients of your generosity. I know that the families we serve were touched and inspired by your generosity. Once again, thank you for all you do to support Isaiah 58 and families in need in the Rockingham County area!
