The foundation is run by board members with different professional backgrounds but all with the same vision - to make a difference in people's lives. It utilizes a furnished shared housing model for people in transition: veterans, foster adults, folks in recovery, people involved with the justice system, and battered women.

 

This kind of shared housing model offers peer support to facilitate accountability and encouragement among residents during their recovery journey while abundantly meeting their housing needs as housing prices in the U.S. skyrocket, and many folks deal with sub-standard housing. All our residents have one thing in common: a desire to live in a great home in a safe neighborhood for a reasonable price.

It is a harsh reality that millions of Americans are currently facing housing insecurity. We at the foundation use our vision and compassion to fight homelessness by providing quality housing that offers peace and tranquility.

 

Our homes are free from alcohol and illegal drug use. We provide them with an environment conducive to focusing on improving and advancing to a better future as our residents work toward self-sufficiency and financial stability.

About the Founder

Jackie Lee, the founder of Shalom House Foundation, has been a quality housing provider in Florida for many years. After returning from two years of work as a missionary in China, she began investing in real estate and provided tenants with excellent housing. As a landlord, she witnessed the transformative impact of quality housing in nice neighborhoods. 

After studying nursing in college, she found her calling in various investment activities instead and worked as an investment adviser. Jackie's guiding principle has always been to treat others as she would wish to be treated. This ethos propelled her to aid individuals facing diverse financial challenges, including assisting property owners in navigating the real estate crisis and offering spiritual, financial, and emotional counsel during difficult times.

The profound satisfaction from helping others regain financial and emotional stability during their darkest hours became the impetus for founding the Shalom House Foundation. Jackie's belief in the power of mutual support to fulfill the destiny ordained by God guides the foundation's mission, promising a more meaningful and fulfilling life than one pursued individually. For those interested in delving deeper into Jackie's philosophy and mission, her book "Destiny by Design" is available on Amazon or via her website, www.DestinybyDesignProject.com. This resource offers a more comprehensive exploration of her personal experience with God and the foundation's underlying principles.
