Orange County Catholic Worker Isaiah House treats all people with dignity & respect. I have volunteered there since 2007 and became a weekly volunteer in 2009. Money & items are well used. The staff is all unpaid volunteers and if donated items can not be used by them, they will get the goods to another organization that can. Dwight is a passionate advocate for the homeless and Leia, Melissa & Nancy somehow manage to keep all the balls in the air even under the most stressful situations. It is a wonderful place and will be a good stewart of donated funds & goods.
