ISAIAH 58 SERVES IMPOVRISHED CHILDREN AND SENIORS
A pastor with nearly three decades of ministry experience, Sheila R. Vitale serves as the founder of Living Epistles Ministries in Port Jefferson Station, New York. Shelia Vitale also supports the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, whose programs include Isaiah 58.
Isaiah 58 serves critically impoverished communities in the former Soviet Union with a focus on elderly individuals and orphaned or abandoned children. Program services include the provision of clothing, food, housing, and other necessities through the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a communal network that delivers food packages and heating fuel. The JDC also offers medical assistance and in-home care to individuals in the community who cannot afford medicine and visits to the doctor. In addition, Isaiah 58 finances a network of safe houses to shelter children who have been abandoned or orphaned.
