Bringing the true source of hope and restoration
Who we are
Isaiah 58 believes in a relational approach to ministry, with Jesus being the ultimate answer. At the onset, this ministry was primarily weekly outreaches to the homeless and disenfranchised in Nashville, oﬀering a meal, fellowship, and friendship.
The consistency allowed us to get to know people at a deeper level. Thus, the idea of employing our friends and creating self sustainable businesses came to fruition.
Both business divisions of Isaiah 58, The Cutting Crew and Spring Back Mattress Recycling, respectively follow a self sustainability business model by employing men who were previously disenfranchised or homeless. Many of whom we met out on outreaches many years ago.
So, every time you use one of our services, you are not only supporting local business, you are helping create jobs, opportunities, and a more hopeful future for our friends.
What we do
Isaiah 58 takes a stand against social injustice in a sense that we believe in second chances. Those who are declined the opportunity for employment elsewhere because of their appearance, living situation or background are welcomed, without judgement.
Many of us on staﬀ, previously, have never sustained gainful employment. Commonly, when we became a part of the Isaiah58 family, some of us were homeless and separate from society and family.
Our goal is to teach staﬀ how to live productively and responsibly. Most importantly, we strive to be a positive inﬂuence to the men we employ and the community we serve.
When given the opportunity, encouragement, and support, we have seen a transformation. The hopeless ﬁnd hope, the homeless ﬁnd homes, disconnected fathers become connected with their children, and rather than taking from society we learn how to give back. Most importantly, a constantly growing relationship with the Lord our God.
Faith without work
The Cutting Crew and Spring Back Mattress Recycling are ventures that allow individuals with little to no job skills ﬁnd employment and learn the trades of landscaping, lawn care, carpentry, plumbing, and electrical maintenance, machine operating, computer skills, communication skills.
This program was built to help men begin to establish healthy work habits, learn to manage ﬁnances, and responsibilities as productive members of our society. Our hope, additionally, is to expand upon providing vocational, physical, relational and spiritual support to our employees.
We are proud to say that our daily operations are fully self supported through the services we provide. While we are proud of this accomplishment, our survival depends on our ability to purchase our own land and warehouse to continue operations and further grow our ministry. We will not be able to do this without the generosity of people like you.

“Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in a sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the lord? Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to lose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter when you see the naked to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own ﬂesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: here am I. if you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing ﬁnger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness , and your night will become like the noonday. The lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58: 6-11
