Rating: 5 stars  

At Global Gathering I was able to taste a variety of ethnic foods and meet the people from other cultures who prepared it. There was live music, dancing and many display tables that educated me about different cultures represented in the area.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Enjoyment of meeting new people with different backgrounds.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing.

I have attended Building Bridges of Respect where I was able to attend interesting workshops about understanding others in the community. I enjoy the display tables there and the craftsmen they invite to show their wares.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I enjoy meeting new people there and stretching my ideas of community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure it had funding.

Communities of Shalom is one of the most multi-faceted, inclusive organization in West Virginia. As a Professional in the field of Public Health and Community Development, I have traveled the state and region assisting communities to develop a coalition to address social concerns. I always use Communities of Shalom as an example of a coalition that truly meets the needs of their community, have an inclusive membership that is open to one and all, and truly implements programs that increases knowledge and awareness from acceptance, substance abuse prevention, to coordinating and sponsoring Global Gatherings, Building Bridges conference that speaks to cultural diversity, youth trainings on bullying, etc. Communities of Shalom truly represents an interfaith organization that serves everyone in the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

It made me realize the importance on involving youth in planning community development coalition, and addressing cultural diversity early on prior to adulthood.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure it received the funding it needs to create a sustainable organization with paid staff.
