Donald, who was homeless and unemployed, was among the first men welcomed into our new Shalom House Men’s Transitional Living Program this past spring. Interview skills building and job coaching were provided through Shalom’s onsite Employment Program. Donald also received a job referral – and a successful job placement!

“We strive to empower men by providing a safe and dignified environment that allows for a successful transition to achieving financial stability and permanent housing,” said Tenesha Williams, Program Director, adding that four residents have already successfully achieved that goal.

The Shalom House team provides daily, on-site support to all residents. These services include guidance counseling, mentorship, employment support, nutrition education, restoration groups and more. In addition to collaborating with Catholic Charities’ programs and services, Shalom partners with other community social services agencies.

Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, who blessed the new space last December, said, “I look forward to seeing how many will be touched in a profound way by their experience here at Shalom House.” 

As we reflect on our revamped Shalom House program, we would like to thank our incredible supporters who have made the return of this ministry possible. Your generosity has been the driving force behind a year of prosperity and positive impact for men experiencing homelessness. We look forward to a future filled with continued empowerment, guidance and support for men in need!
