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.
