About Us

Beginnings

Isiaiah 54 started in 1987 with two friends of Glynnis’ daughter. These two girls were sexually abused at home and Glynnis offered these two girls a safe place.

Now Isiaiah54 has grown to a large family with children who are abused, abandoned and HIV infected children, between the ages of 0 to 18. Isiaiah 54 is not just a roof over their heads and food, it's a big family where they belong , it is a house that they can call home.

It does not matter what their background is or their beliefs , as long as we can make a difference for that child in particular.

We don’t only help abused and abandoned children but we also help the community. We have a Pre-school for children of single moms and families living under the bread line, distribution of clothing, furniture, toys, etc.

This reaches out not only to our local community in need but also to the Rural areas, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, with clothing, food, etc.  What we cannot use we share with others. Our doors are always open for people that need our help and advice.

Mission

Crisis Care

To provide the best crisis care for abused and abandoned children.

Child Development

To help with the development of each child, to achieve a normal lifestyle in the future.

24/7 Assistance

To work closely with the police and welfare organizations, and be available 24/7 to assist in any trauma / crisis situation involving children.

I started Isiaiah 54 in 1987. I always wanted 6 children, unfortunately I was not able to hold my pregnancies after I give birth to my daughter. After many miscarriages and the death of my second baby I never lost the “mommy” in me.
