My wife and I volunteer at Shalom House one night a week, and it has been a life changing experience for us. Shalom House is much more than a shelter for homeless women. Although they do provide shelter for homeless women, they more importantly work with the women to overcome the situations that resulted in their homelessness. They are very sucessful in achieving this, and spending time with the women on a wekly basis provides us the privledge to see the amazing transformation most of the women go through while at Shalom House. It is such a joy to see the women "graduate" and move out to a new life on their own.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Establishing relationships with the women and seeing the transformation they undergo while at Shalom House. The results are simply amazing! the women come out of themselves, become more self-confident and more self-reliant.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find some way to provide for the day-to-day operating needs for Shalom House so the staff members can spend 100% of their time helping the women.
Volunteer & Volunteer weekly spending time with the women.
