Ribbon Cutting

Shalom Counselling Services celebrates the completion of “A Growing Home for Shalom”

Waterloo - Shalom celebrated the successful completion of the “A Growing Home for Shalom” expansion project at an open house and ribbon-cutting on Thursday, December 10, 2015. The “Growing Home for Shalom” expansion project has provided additional space for Shalom’s work of affordable and accessible counselling for people from all walks of life.

The open house was attended by a community who believe in the importance of the affordable and accessible counselling services provided by Shalom, including Shalom’s supporters, Board of Directors, representatives from partner agencies, government and community.

Executive Director, Wanda Wagler-Martin notes that, “Shalom is surrounded by a ‘community of care’ who supports this work and indeed makes it possible.”

Taking a walk through the newly renovated building provided community members with a glimpse into the new spaces that are available for counselling. The first change that greeted visitors to Shalom was the expanded waiting room, a bright, spacious and welcoming introduction to a renovated Shalom. All 11 counselling offices were on display, allowing guests to see where the counselling at Shalom takes place, and snacks were available in the expanded group room.

In dedicating the renovations at Shalom, Board Chair, Brenda Leis described this process as, “expanding on the legacy of Shalom’s commitment to providing affordable and accessible counselling services in our community.”

Awareness and demand for counselling services at Shalom continues to rise, and has risen by a third in the past three years; through this expansion, Shalom is doing its part to meet this need.
