homeless men's shelter
For more than 30 years, Shalom House has offered shelter and hospitality to homeless men in Kansas City, Kansas. Originally started as a Catholic Worker House, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas assumed operation of the house in 2008. Each day, Shalom House opens its doors to 25 men of all faiths in need of shelter, food and companionship. Services are provided at no charge and include a safe place to sleep, dinner and breakfast, shower (toiletries and other necessities provided), laundry, clothes, referrals for medical and employment assistance and the companionship and support of people who care about each guest’s life and future. The men are encouraged to access community resources that will help them develop a plan to return to self-sufficiency.
How You Can Help
Shalom House is fortunate to receive support from the community in the form of cash and in-kind contributions. The cornerstone of the House’s ability to provide services is the hundreds of volunteers that devote their time, talent and treasure to support the program. Each evening, volunteer groups from families, churches, community organizations, civic groups and companies prepare, serve and share dinner with the guests. Shalom House is always in need of more volunteers to prepare, deliver and serve evening meals as well as financial support and gifts of goods used at the House.
