The Isaiah House treatment center held its second graduation ceremony of 2019 on Saturday, Jan. 26, at First Christian Church in Danville, celebrating the accomplishments of 63 men and women.
The Christ-centered drug and alcohol treatment center saw 29 clients graduate from the phase one portion of the program, and an additional 17 clients graduated from the transformation program. The transformation program consists of clients who have completed eight months of residential treatment and three months of aftercare. One client graduated from the Restoration Program.
This was the first graduation that included women who completed the program at Isaiah House’s Lisa Walker Center in Harrodsburg. Ten women that completed the program were recognized for their accomplishments.
This graduation was attended by more than 400 people.

IH guys attend the NFL Draft in Nashville
The annual National Football League (NFL) Draft made its way to Nashville this year, spanning three days and bringing record crowds to the city. Several of the guys from Isaiah House were able to work security for the event, providing an amazing experience they otherwise may not have been able to have. Thank you to all the generous donors who gave in order to make sure the guys had the clothes they needed for this event.
