Isaiah House awarded $2.4 Million Grant to address Employment Barriers for People in Recovery

Isaiah House

Isaiah House, Inc. has been awarded a $2,473,200 federal grant from SAMSHA, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. These funds will support Isaiah House Recovery Workforce Support Program that will address employment barriers for people in recovery and the workforce gaps resulting from substance use disorder.

The grant will span five years and serve over 6,000 Kentuckians. Funds will create a statewide Recovery Career Network that will support successful employment of people in recovery. The project also include career coaching, skills training, and job placement services for people leaving treatment and returning to the community. Finally, Isaiah House will develop a hybrid peer support specialist program that will assist hundreds of Kentucky residents in developing and implementing a recovery plan based on their personal goals and aspirations.JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwc3JjJTNEJTIyaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cuZmFjZWJvb2suY29tJTJGcGx1Z2lucyUyRnZpZGVvLnBocCUzRmhlaWdodCUzRDMxNCUyNmhyZWYlM0RodHRwcyUyNTNBJTI1MkYlMjUyRnd3dy5mYWNlYm9vay5jb20lMjUyRklzYWlhaEhvdXNlSW5jJTI1MkZ2aWRlb3MlMjUyRjM4NjUyNTgzNjQwODM5MiUyNTJGJTI2c2hvd190ZXh0JTNEZmFsc2UlMjZ3aWR0aCUzRDU2MCUyNnQlM0QwJTIyJTIwd2lkdGglM0QlMjI1NjAlMjIlMjBoZWlnaHQlM0QlMjIzMTQlMjIlMjBzdHlsZSUzRCUyMmJvcmRlciUzQW5vbmUlM0JvdmVyZmxvdyUzQWhpZGRlbiUzQiUyMGRpc3BsYXklM0ElMjBibG9jayUzQiUyMG1hcmdpbi1sZWZ0JTNBJTIwYXV0byUzQiUyMG1hcmdpbi1yaWdodCUzQSUyMGF1dG8lM0IlMjIlMjBzY3JvbGxpbmclM0QlMjJubyUyMiUyMGZyYW1lYm9yZGVyJTNEJTIyMCUyMiUyMGFsbG93ZnVsbHNjcmVlbiUzRCUyMnRydWUlMjIlMjBhbGxvdyUzRCUyMmF1dG9wbGF5JTNCJTIwY2xpcGJvYXJkLXdyaXRlJTNCJTIwZW5jcnlwdGVkLW1lZGlhJTNCJTIwcGljdHVyZS1pbi1waWN0dXJlJTNCJTIwd2ViLXNoYXJlJTIyJTIwYWxsb3dGdWxsU2NyZWVuJTNEJTIydHJ1ZSUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRmlmcmFtZSUzRQ== Aug 25, 2021  Article by Diamond Palmer: New Pastor Helps Welcome $2.5 million Grant to Isaiah House
