A Place for Long-Term Change
For more than 30 years, Shalom House has offered shelter and hospitality to homeless men in Kansas City, Kansas. Originally started as a Catholic Worker House, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas assumed operation of the house in 2008.
Each day, Shalom House opens its doors to 24 men of all faiths in need of shelter, food and companionship. Services are provided at no charge and include a safe place to sleep, eat dinner and breakfast, shower (toiletries and other necessities provided), do laundry and get clothing. In addition, men get employment assistance as well as referrals for medical care. Most of all, the men have the support of people who genuinely care about their life and future. They find the resources and the encouragement that they need to help them develop a plan to successfully transition to permanent housing.
Shalom House is almost 100% volunteer driven and we are so appreciative of the care and effort that our volunteers make to ensure our brothers are nourished. Click here to sign-up to volunteer and view time slots for our meal drop-off/serve Shalom House Dinner ministry.
