SHALOM HOUSE | MEN’S TRANSITIONAL LIVING
Transitional living program for men struggling with homelessness.
Formerly a retreat center for priests, this 21,600 SF historic building has been renovated into transitional living for up to 60 houseless men.
Shalom House offers free services to men of all faiths, including shelter, food, and support. They provide a safe place to sleep, meals, showers, laundry, and clothing. They also offer employment assistance and medical referrals. The program lasts 6-9 months and aims to transition residents to permanent housing, with a success rate of 80-90%.
The 21,600 SF renovation of the former Sanctuary of Hope, Prayer and Retreat Center for Priests. This facility was owned by the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas and donated to Catholic Charities, as the old Shalom House location had limited space and could only accommodate 24 men. The renovation will allow them to serve up to 60 men in their program.
The new facility features 30 bedrooms, meeting rooms, common areas, a new commercial kitchen, and a chapel. Scope of work included finish upgrades, almost a full replacement of the MEP systems, windows, and roof replacement.
