Get to Know Isaiah House, Loving Home for Children
Thank you to our many local Waco area sponsors included in this guide.
Isaiah 117 House is a nurturing environment for children to go when they are removed from their homes and are waiting to be placed in the foster care system. The house provides both physical necessities as well as a loving environment for the children. Walking alongside caseworkers to care for children allows them the time to find appropriate and safe placements for each child. The goal of the organization is to “lavishly love” on the children and reduce the trauma, changing the way their foster care journey begins.
Jennifer Villalpando and Janay Morgan are the Program Coordinators for the McLennan County location. They became connected with the Isaiah 117 House after Jennifer’s good friend introduced her to the organization. She encouraged Janay to volunteer, and before they knew it, the two were heading the program in McLennan County. Both Jennifer and Janay have experiences as foster parents in Waco and have seen firsthand the struggles, loss, and need that comes with the foster system, so there was no doubt in their minds that the McLennan community could benefit from this organization.
They hope to break ground by the end of 2022 and open by next summer, but that hope could not become reality without the help and support of the members of the community. Anything helps, whether it is raising awareness, assisting with the construction of the home, providing items or financial support, becoming a volunteer, or participating in the organization’s events. Janay concludes by saying, “We pray that the organization continues to grow and spread throughout Texas as well. Every county needs an Isaiah 117 House to bridge the gap between removal time and find a wonderful placement for the children.
Isaiah 117 House is doing incredible work for the children of Waco!
