From the Directors

Greetings!

Sally Jeffery - Director - Isaiah House GA

Sally Jeffery - Director of Operations - Isaiah House GA

Ed and I are very excited about the opening of Isaiah House! In 2008 we were introduced to a gentleman who desired to lease his newly acquired property to an entity that would serve the community in a positive manner. We believed the property would be an excellent location for a much needed men’s transitional housing and substance abuse recovery center.

In 2007 I heard Gilmer County Sheriff Stacy Nicholson state that 90% of the arrests made in Gilmer County were in some way drug related. He quoted a statistic that 1 in 40 Georgians used methamphetamine and that 1 in 10 used it in North Georgia. That is 1 in 10 in our schools, 1 in 10 in our work place, 1 in 10 in our neighborhood. In addition we have alcohol and drug use and abuse that includes; illicit prescription painkillers, crack, cocaine, marijuana, huffing and other designer drugs. Drugs and alcohol start out filling a black hole in the soul of a man. It can spread and take over their life destroying everything in its path. The victim then seems to find no way out. Usually this leaves a man and his family spiritually, emotionally, physically and economically bankrupt. If there is no change, this lifestyle is destined to repeat itself in the next generation.

We believe there is hope. We have a vision for ‘Isaiah House’

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
Isaiah 61:1-2

We shall offer a healthy, balanced, and structured environment for the whole man, addressing the spiritual, physical, emotional, and financial issues. Our goal is  to provide a safe place where the tools for recovery, transformation, healing and wholeness can take place. We provide our residents with the tools to break destructive patterns and habits, begin making right choices, set goals, restore broken relationships and begin living a disciplined abundant life with hope for a future.

We invite you to join us in the effort to break the bondage of addiction and walk with the man who is ready to be set free.

Respectfully and hopeful,

Ed and Sally Jeffery
Isaiah House
