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.
Through an approach that combines Circles USA techniques with the individualized support of our dedicated volunteers and the resources of organizations and communities, we create an environment that educates, empowers and equips our members to move up and out of poverty successfully.
