Volunteer with Isaiah 58 Ministries
In 1970, Compton Heights Christian Church with 3 other area churches founded Isaiah 58 Ministries, then known as the Four Church Association. Isaiah 58 is an independent social service agency established to meet the needs of low-income individuals in our community through direct services including a food pantry, clothing closet, and utility assistance. There are many opportunities for people to volunteer to support the work of Isaiah 58, including: working in the food pantry, sorting and organizing items in the thrift store, assisting the office manager with mailings, teaching/leading classes and workshops and being a youth sponsor.
