Little Things Can Make a Big Difference!

Here are some ways you can help make a difference in the lives we touch at Shalom House.


Thank you for standing with survivors of domestic violence, and thank you for supporting  Shalom House.

Because of your generosity, women and children will be able to sleep peacefully tonight, secure in one of our  safe havens. Hey'll  be able to enjoy a hot breakfast  in the morning, without worrying about a violent argument erupting. As families will also begin to heal and receive support with planning for the future. 

Your gift can do all of this for these families.

It can also provide hope that the family violence they have survived will impact fewer and fewer people, as Shalom House continues to lead the struggle to end domestic violence – advocating for a better way forward.

Simply send us a check, made payable to, Shalom House, 9 South 15th Street,  Harrisburg, PA 17104.

This letter is to truly, truly thank the staff at Shalom House...I have gone through a lot of heartache and pain, thinking that there was no light at the end of the tunnel and no one to talk to...I was about to run from my problems again, I felt tired but wanted to stand up and fight. Coming here to Shalom House gave me a breath of fresh air; the staff and environment were very friendly, loving and caring. They gave me the one thing that I needed – my self-esteem... I just can’t thank you enough.”
