WHO WE ARE
The Isabella County Restoration House (ICRH) has grown out of a concern for the underlying causes of homelessness. While the ICRH, its community partners, and the guests work toward eliminating those causes, we realize the need is immediate and urgent for individuals who need shelter. Our short-term goal is to provide a safe, warm place for those in our community who need shelter for as many winter nights as possible.
In six years of providing emergency shelter, the ICRH has experienced exponential growth in guests from an average of 9 guests per night in the inaugural season of 2012-2013, to 27 guests in 2017-2018. There is clear evidence that homelessness in Isabella County is real and the need for emergency shelter is on the rise.
