Isaiah House lost an amazing part of our family and team on Friday Feb 1. It is with a heavy heart with great sadness for us and yet. great joy for him that we announce the passing of Neal “Banjo Man” James.
Neal was an amazing man who had an amazing ability and talent to reach those most broken. His music and his life touched everyone! He brought joy to those who had lost all joy in their lives!
Neal joined our team about 6 months ago and he will be greatly missed. 165 staff members and over 200 clients are better for the life of Banjo Man! Hid love for Jesus was unmatched and his love for people was unquenchable! He truly was one of a kind.
Neal, You Rock with Jesus now!

Congratulations to Jordan Wilson our 5 Star Employee of the Month!
Jordan’s job is public relations supervisor. He manages the public relations office. His job is making the public aware of who we are and what we do. Fundraising, developing new relationships with businesses, churches, and donors, giving his testimony of recovery and creating events are just some of what his job requires.
We are glad to have Jordan as a part of the Isaiah House family. He was chosen by his co-workers. He received a special keepsake gift, front door parking in the designated employee of the month parking space, and will enjoy lunch with Isaiah House President Mike Cox.
