A pillar of the local non-profit community, the Shalom Center of the Interfaith Network offers refuge and help to individuals and families undergoing hardship. The emergency family shelter provides food, safe place to sleep, transportation assistance and case management; The INNS (Individuals in Need of Nightly Shelter) provides temporary emergency shelter to homeless individuals in Kenosha County. Case management is provided to all guests to help them become independent and self-sufficient.
For those with shelter, but in need of food assistance, the Shalom Center operates both a soup kitchen and food pantry. The soup kitchen has served a meal to everyone who walks through their doors, every day, for over 30 years, no questions asked. The food pantry distributes perishable and non-perishable groceries to families in need, three days per week. Documentation is required to participate. Staff, both full and part-time, as well as dedicated volunteers help to make The Shalom Center’s programs possible. Stop by their HarborMarket booth, or visit their website to learn more about ways you can help.
