Isaiah House Events
Isaiah House Golf Tournament
Isaiah House opened its doors to the city of Rochester over 30 years ago. It was a fairly new concept, but one that our community embraced. A private home would welcome two residents with a less than three-month prognosis. Referrals would come from area hospitals, nursing homes, and individual homes. Volunteers would staff the home and provide bedside care around the clock. Our volunteers would become family and our home would become their home. The health department was supportive as long as we agreed to limit our residents to two. Our doors opened during the AIDS epidemic. Our mission was born out of the pain and suffering of other human beings. Isaiah House would care for those with the fewest options and greatest needs.
Today we continue to care for those with mental illness, those with communicable diseases, those with various social and/or physical needs, the uninsured, and those who find themselves dying alone. We provide and meet every need by offering a home, meals, care, and medical staff. Isaiah House doesn’t receive any type of insurance reimbursement. We rely solely on donations from the people of our community.
We have cared for more than 500 people over the past thirty years. So often many of our
residents and families are unable to contribute financially. Their illness often drains their bank accounts and costs them their jobs.
The viability of our home depends on fundraisers like this year’s golf tournament. Please consider sponsoring our event which needs to raise $50,000!
Isaiah House doesn’t receive funding. Our home, our care, and our ability to bring hope to peoples’ lives depend on your generosity. Thank you for supporting this year’s Heartwork Campaign.
