About Us

A non-denominational 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Shalom House provides a temporary 21-bed shelter for women and children who have no where else to go. The shelter is located in the City of Harrisburg. As an emergency shelter, Shalom House provides for their basic needs: a bed, assistance with food resources, clothing, health and hygiene supplies, and a temporary address and telephone number.

Shalom House's extended case management services help women move toward self-sufficiency, to never become homeless again. Experienced caregivers know when to listen, when to hug, and when to give advice. Shalom House services include:

  • case management

  • referral services

  • life skills training

  • computer facilities to expand current skills and prepare a resume
