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.

Donate supplies

We are always in need of essential items to help the women and children who pass through our doors. Currently, we are in need of the following:

This letter is to truly, truly thank the staff at Shalom House. I recently was a resident 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 have a lot of thoughts running through my head that made me fall into a state of depression, and just when I was about to run from my problems again, I felt tired and 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 really appreciate all the things that you at Shalom House have done and given me. I just can’t thank you enough.”

Sustaining Investor

Being a Sustaining Donor with Shalom House is in a class all it's own. Our Sustainers recognize that while losing one’s home is tough for anyone, it is especially devastating for women and children.

Our important work can only be sustained by those who give on a regular basis; those who can help us pay for the ongoing needs that keep the lights on here at the Shalom House. Food, insurance, supplies, other costs that a shelter such as ours needs to focus on our mission.

Increase Your Donation Amount
You can increase your donation by voluntarily paying the cost of the transaction. When asked to pay via Credit/Debit Card, PayPal or by bank withdrawal, you are given an option to pay the fee. You're not obligated, of course, but every bit helps. Thanks!

Shalom House will not trade, share or sell a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations and/or we will only share personal information once the donor has given us specific permission to do so.

All gifts to Shalom House, of course, are tax deductible. A copy of the official registration and financial information may be obtained from the PA Dept. of State by calling toll-free, within PA, 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.
