We develop and grow programs that challenge the cycle of poverty in our community with a spirit of inclusion, compassion and justice.

What is The Shalom Project?

We are a highly committed board of directors, staff and team of volunteers who serve in community with our clients with a spirit of inclusion, compassion and justice.



The Shalom Project spirit is one of "doing with" instead of "doing for." Folks who have lived in poverty are a part of our organization: our board of directors, our staff and, most importantly, our front line of volunteers. 


We believe every person in our community should have their basic needs met, access to health care and hope for a brighter future. We advocate for improvements in our community structures, systems and services.


Inclusion fosters compassion. We help shoulder the burden of poverty for our clients because we know it is more than lack of financial means. Our hope and goal is that, after each visit, our clients leave feeling their burden lightened.


We have big goals.

The Shalom Project wants to make a lasting difference to the poverty situation in Winston-Salem in addition to the programs we run to assist people with immediate needs. Two areas where we have chosen to put our efforts are to assist families in building permanent pathways out of poverty through training and mentoring and to build a healthier community around a neighborhood thoroughfare through physical improvements.

Share your compassion.

Our success depends on the hard work of our volunteers and the financial support of our donors. Please consider supporting The Shalom Project with your time and gifts.


We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
