Shalom Affordable Housing

The Shalom affordable housing complex, which includes Shalom and Shalom II Apartments, offers supportive living with services for seniors and the mobility impaired. Located on a landscaped, 8.6-acre site in suburban Warwick, Shalom is a short walk from area shopping malls and close to I-95.

A National Model

Shalom and Shalom II Apartments integrate strong supportive programs and activities for seniors and mobility-impaired adults. This approach enables us to offer an enriched service environment where tenants thrive.

Since it opened in 1980, Shalom’s reputation has grown both locally and nationally as a model for supportive affordable housing. Both Shalom and Shalom II have earned a superior rating from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

An Enriched Environment

At our Shalom and adjacent Shalom II Apartments, a Resident Service coordinator is on hand to assess each tenant’s needs and provide help connecting with appropriate agencies and services. Our central dining room, a hub of activities, provides noontime meals.
