In the early 2000’s, five community members looked around and saw new families were moving in, and new needs were surfacing. Families were hungry. Parents needed support. And they realized we all needed a closer, more caring community. So in partnership with Otterbein United Methodist Church, they took a leap of faith, purchased an old home on Green Street, remodeled it, and gave it a new name: Shalom House. In 2012, Shalom House became an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Shalom House Opportunities
Shalom House is Looking for Partnerships
Shalom House is a well-managed, fiscally responsible non-profit organization whose operations are overseen by a volunteer board of directors. We’re fortunate that many local donors allow us to serve this community. But we couldn’t accomplish everything we do without the significant investments made by our partners. Our partners are individuals, companies, churches, and other organizations that recognize the importance of addressing food insecurity and its effects on the community. They do their part by providing generous financial and in-kind support to our operations.
Donate to Shalom House
Your donation allows us to continue to meet hunger needs and create a spirit of caring within our community. We thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
