Beyond Shelter/Thanksgiving Market

PATH Beyond Shelter is a non-profit organization founded in 1988 in response to increasing numbers of homeless families in Los Angeles and the need for a more comprehensive approach to serving them. Today, the mission of the agency is to develop systemic approaches to combat poverty and homelessness among families with children, and to enhance family economic security and well-being. Temple Isaiah supports PATH Beyond Shelter through a number of preschool Social Action programs, including the annual Thanksgiving Market, for which a market is set up in the social hall where preschool classes shop for Thanksgiving meals to support formerly homeless families. Temple Isaiah’s goal has been to teach the preschool children about Tzedakah, and the Social Action programs provide the children with hands-on experiences that teach them about giving back to those in need.
