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 the only requirement and determinant for the services.

In 1998, several individuals 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.  The team included people from First Christian Church Disciples of Christ, First Presbyterian, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, First United Methodist Church, and Living Water.

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.
