Here at Shalom we serve an average of 4,000 meals per month.  The coldest time of the year is upon us, and those of us with warm homes and beds to sleep in may easily forget that many do not have a home nor bed to sleep in – often due to sudden change in living status, domestic violence, loss of job, or other unforseen circumstance.  If you feel compassion and want to help out by donating items, our current needs are as follows:


Rolled Oats

Brown Sugar, White Sugar

Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder

Thank you and bless you for your generosity and kindness!

Feel free to visit us sometime for dinner on Monday or Thursday from 4pm-6pm.  We would love to meet and talk to you.  A group of willing painters during the upcoming spring or summer would be most welcome to freshen up and clean up walls. Please pray for us!

** We need support as well as donations and more breakfast volunteers. **

Thank you so much.  May you be blessed by your giving and generous, kind spirit.  And we bless you.

Success Story

Only 14 months ago, Michelle found herself homeless and literally on the curb—no money, no place to call her own, in need of medical and dental care, with no job skills and with little more than a backpack. This petite 59-year old woman suffering from bi-polar mental health issues was certain her life was hopeless. A friend urged her to visit our Dining with Dignity program and meet Connie Nelson, Program Manager at Shalom Ministries’ Pathways Program. With the help and encouragement from Connie and the Shalom staff, Michelle is no longer a victim; she is a winner in charge of her new life and helping others regain their self-confidence and hope.

Shalom has and continues to help others through the “Pathways” of change and opportunities back into the mainstream. We have so much to do and so many others who need help. And we can’t accomplish these badly needed services without your help. PLEASE consider sending a gift today!

Your generosity has never been more needed, and appreciated, than now. Shalom’s vital team of volunteers turns your help and God’s love into amazing meals for all our guests, who Dine with Dignity every week! Won’t you consider taking a few moments to make a difference? Any contribution you send today will be a blessing!

Please consider becoming a corporate or individual donor.
