A home life that is positive, comfortable, rewarding and inviting.  Loyal, dedicated, well-trained staff who encourage independence through the teaching and practice of life skills.  Shalom residents have opportunities and support to: be employed in many different job settings, be involved in community organizations and leisure groups, socialize with and entertain friends and family, celebrate special events, travel on vacations, enjoy concerts and theatre, develop strong bonds with those around them.


What Makes Us Unique?

We provide a spiritual setting that fosters a Jewish identity.  While dietary laws are observed and the Sabbath and Jewish Holidays are celebrated, admission is open to all.  We also foster a friendship community.  Interaction between all of the people who live and work within Shalom is encouraged.
