MISSION STATEMENT

Isaiah 58 is a Christian assistance ministry inspired by God�s word in Isaiah 58:7-8 (Is it not to share your food with the hungry and when you see the naked, to clothe him and not to turn away?  Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear, then your righteousness will go before you and be glory of the Lord will go before you and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard).

We distribute food, clothing, emergency prescription help, and in cooperation with West Texas Opportunities, Salvation Army, and Northside Community Center emergency one time rent and utilities help when we have sufficient funds.  We provide these services to people without regard to race or religious faith.  Need is only the requirement and determinant for the services.

In 1998, several individuals from First Christian Church Disciples of Christ, and other Church members from First Presbyterian,  and St. Mary Episcopal,  and First United Methodist Church,  and Living Water.  Here in Big Spring had a vision to extend the ministry of Christ by providing emergency food and clothing to the homeless, to low income seniors, the unemployed and needy families.  After much prayer and paperwork, Texas chartered and the IRS granted 501�3 status to ISAIAH 58.  The doors opened in March 1998.  In 2001 we became part of the United Way family.  In 2007 a grant was received from the Dora Roberts Foundation which enabled us to serve three times the number of clients.  All of us at ISAIAH 58 are volunteers thus no salary expenses.  In 2008, our 33 volunteers have served more than 5,500 hours.

This is an ecumenical effort. St. Mary's Episcopal; St. Paul's Lutheran, First United Methodist, Birdwell Methodist, Temple and Berea Baptist, First Presbyterian, Nazarene and First Christian Church have all provide volunteers and/or financial support.

In 2009, we distributed more than 300,000 pounds of food to 5509 families.  Much clothing was given including children's and adult's winter coats and blankets, Utilities assistance of $43.024.00, Rent assistance of $7,180.00 and other assistance of $5,000.00 was provided last year thru Isaiah 58.

We are in constant need on funds, volunteers, food, clothing and above all PRAYER.
