ABOUT US


Shama Ministries is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.  Its mission along with its volunteers is to dedicate its time and resources to seeking opportunities that directly add to the quality of life of individuals and communities in the inner city and at large.  This has been and continues to be its mission since 1998.  Despite very limited funding, Shama Ministries has successfully provided an array of outreach projects for a number of years.  Shama Ministries expanded its outreach efforts in 2008, when it welcomed another extension - the House of Refuge - a Christian Transitional Home that has serviced over 3,000 individuals - both men and women, who were released directly from incarceration to the House of Refuge, along with others who had completed the required treatment of drug addictions and those who were homeless found refuge and opportunity to gather the tools necessary for successful reentry.  Shama Ministries celebrates 89.3% successful reentry with little recidivism under this project.  Shama Ministries is preparing the House of Refuge to now become a Rescue Home for women fleeing human Trafficking.  We hope you will consider assisting Shama Ministries both financially and other volunteer opportunities that are available.  Shama Ministries is a year round outreach and help is always needed.
