Who We Serve

The Shalom Center serves the low income population of Kenosha County. We serve persons who are homeless and impoverished due to loss of employment, health problems, mental illness and other causes. We also serve Kenosha County residents who are low income and experiencing hunger caused by a lack of sufficient income to buy needed food after paying rent and other living expenses. A lack of affordable housing in our community for low income wage earners is a common problem for most of the people we serve.
