Katie Hibner, Director of Campus Ministry


In support of our Lenten Almsgiving Partner: Isaiah117 House

The Purpose of Isaiah117 House:

When children are removed from their homes out of concern for their safety, they are usually taken to the child welfare services office to await placement. This wait can be a few hours to several days. These children often have nothing with them and are scared, lonely, hungry, and in dirty clothing.

Isaiah 117 provides a comforting home where these children instead can be brought to wait – a place that is safe with friendly and loving volunteers who provide clean clothes, smiles, toys, and snuggly blankets. This space allows children to receive the comfort and care they need while child welfare staff can do the necessary paperwork and identify a good placement.

The mission of Isaiah 117 House is threefold:

• reduce trauma for children awaiting placement

• lighten the load for child welfare services

• ease the transition for foster families


Since opening in August of 2023, the house in Indianapolis/Marion County has welcomed 121 guests with an average of about 5 per week. It costs approximately $300 to provide clothing and essentials for each child.


In Marion County, there are 2,300 children placed outside of their home – with an additional 400 children in Johnson County. The Roncalli community can make a difference in the lives of these children!
