Shalom Center was founded in 1982 by a small group of individuals who hoped to do one simple thing: feed those in need. Today they continue that mission of hope by serving as the only homeless shelter, largest food pantry, and longest running nightly meal program in Kenosha County. The presence of the Green Bay Packers will help honor the unwavering spirit and dedication that has propelled the growth of the local non-profit.
