Soup Kitchen & Food Pantry
In 1996 Isaiah’s Temple established its soup kitchen, food pantry, and clothing distribution center, here we serve hot meals and distribute dry food as well as clothing distribution twice a week. Our services also extend to HIV counseling and other needs as they arise. Averages of 1,500 to 2000 individuals are served on a monthly basis and our numbers continue to grow. Our program is subsidized by: United Way of New York, City Emergency Food Assistance Program, City Harvest, Food for Survival and others.

Isaiah’s Crystal Light House
Isaiah’s Temple was also successful in launching Isaiah’s Crystal Light House, another well needed community service, focusing its attention on assisting troubled youths and their infants as they transition from foster care to independent living. ICLH is securing funding to build housing units to accommodate female youth between the ages 18 to 21 years who are aging out of the foster care system. ICCF aim is to offer supportive and transitional housing to accommodate these young women and their children as they transition from the foster care to independent living. Their support system would include but not limited to building the initiative to stay in school or enroll in GED program, assistance with applying to training programs or college, vocational training that would include training in job readiness skills, job placement, employment, and prenatal care. Our aim is to successfully prepare these young adults with skills that would enable them rehabilitated within 18 to 36 months.
We believe we are our brother’s keeper; therefore our aim is to work hand in hand with our community leaders to build relationships and enhance its citizens. As we move forward we pray that the hand of God will guide us on our journey with his unchanging love.
