Shalom Apartments

A Place To Live. An Environment Where People Thrive.

It was 1980 when Shalom first opened: Since that time, its reputation has grown, both locally and nationally. Shalom and Shalom II integrate strong supportive programs and tenant activities, creating an enriched service environment where people thrive.

A Resident Service coordinator is on hand to assess tenant needs and provide help with appropriate agencies and services. Our central dining room, a hub of activities, provides noontime meals.

In addition, an exceptional tenants association keeps the energy levels high with planned trips, meetings, speakers programs, parties and a general store.
