My community is blessed to have an organization such as Communities of Shalom. Over my entire career, which includes several years as a Social Worker, Substance Abuse therapist, and Teacher, I have never before encountered an organization who so greatly embraces everyone. Communities of Shalom strives to bring people together from all walks of life to work on building a better community. They encourage citizens to get involved at a local level to create change and they provide opportunites for our community to learn and grow.

The Great!

This organization was an integral part of my high school experience. I participated in a youth group started and funded by Shalom. I met other high school students from a variety of backgrounds who were interested in serving others. I worked on countless service projects through this group. This group was open to all who were interested. I felt like I finally belonged to a group of people who accepted me for who I am. I also was able to significantly contribute to my community, as well as to other communities on service trips.

The Great!

The youth of our community were lucky enough to benefit from the support that the Communities of Shalom gave to a vibrant, welcoming ecumenical youth organization called JOURNEY. JOURNEY was able to provide numerous opportunities of fellowship, mission experiences, worship, and leadership to many pre teens, teenagers and young adults through Communities of Shalom's financial support and adult leadership. Communities of Shalom continues to provide opportunities for our citizens to reach out and make our community a better place.

The Great!

I have been involved with Shalom for many years. I enjoy helping out with the Building Bridges of Respect Conference, the most. It is held every other year and about 200 people attend. We explore diversity issues in our community and support small businesses/artists/craftspeople.

I
especially like that everyone is welcome at the meetings and everyone has a voice.
