The rates that we charge for our fellas is approximately $45 per hour per person for our hardscapes team; and $40 per hour per person for our softscapes team.
We are 100% insured with public liability and third party cover this also includes workers comp insurance. The reason for this low rate is that we want your business; as without it we couldn’t do what we do – Restore the lives of men & families in our community. It’s really important to know that 100% of the profits from Shalom Works and its teams goes back into the running of the Shalom House program. Our main goal is to tackle the problems of addiction and drugs in our community head on.
We are a 100% self-funded not for profit organisation:
We do not ask for grants or government assistance of any kind. We do our best to teach our fellas to work for everything they achieve in life – and we try to model the same. We really value the work that we are given as an organisation and don’t take it for granted. We aim to do our best to respect and honour every customer regardless of the job. When we leave the job site complete and finished the customer personally within themselves are better off than they were before we came. We are not just about the work but also about the person.
Shalom Works staffs men who have been caught in a spiral of life controlling issues and drug addiction and have made the decision to do whatever it takes to change their lives. Most people’s perception of a person who fits in this category is misinformed. They are good, hard-working men who have just made some wrong choices and they need a little help getting right again.
Our aim is to see the lives of these men fully restored to a point where they are able to re-join society completely set up to succeed in life. We aim to get each member of our program either full time work, into their own business, an apprenticeship as a tradesman or into part or full time study. We come alongside the men to bring out the best in them, encouraging them to believe that nothing is impossible and that they can achieve or do whatever their hearts set out to do.
We endeavor to impart skills that will help them throughout their lives and in their work places. We encourage interpersonal skills, effective communication, good moral and work ethic, personal responsibility and even prepare the men physically and mentally for a hard day’s work, conditioning them over time to be able to achieve any task.
By sending our residents out to different jobs with our team, they are given the opportunity to learn new skill sets and build their confidence in the workplace. Most wouldn’t give them the time of day, let alone the chance to work and learn. With each job we receive it is helping to restore a man’s life and give him and his family a future. We believe everyone is where they are because of their choices. By working hard and earning money they are taking back responsibility for their lives and actions. Paying off debt and becoming self-sufficient is a huge part in the restoration process for a man coming out of a life of addiction
Shalom Works also takes on charity and volunteer work by giving our services for free to those in need and other organisations that may need our help, through our Community Services branch. Please call 0467096443 or email CommunityServices@ShalomHouse.com.au if you fell that you may qualify. Our motto is “Helping those who help others”, so whatever we can do within reason to help you, we’re there for you.
Serving our Community
Shalom House is always looking for new ways to serve the community and assist people in need.
A massive part of our program entails giving back to those who are in need. Whether it
is helping rebuild playground equipment, repairing the home of someone who can’t or simply collecting rubbish to preserve our environment, Shalom House takes pride in its ability to assist our community. We do this work 100% charitably, asking for nothing in return. It is our organisation’s goal to not only restore the lives of men and families, but also to serve our community in any way that we can.
Shalom House will often come alongside people who have suffered a tragedy like fire or vandalism and don’t know where to start rebuilding. Our team will do all that they can to make sure that this devastating time is made a little easier.
We have a dedicated truck for community purposes with tools and an enthusiastic team of men to get the job done. They are overseen by a team leader and advised by qualified trades people for the bigger jobs.
Shalom House truly loves its community, we have a deep respect for its people and leaders, for the families, the schools and the businesses. A part of our program is to teach this respect and love to our residents, by giving them the opportunity to take pride in the place that they live, to give back and to serve the people around them.
