Join the Zahal Shalom Family!


Volunteers are essential to the success of our entire program. Any type of help you can
provide is greatly appreciated – planning daily trips, creating emails, outreach, planning
events, fundraising, helping transport, etc….Every aspect of our program.


Host Families

Hosts play a pivotal role in the program by providing a loving and attentive home, and participating in the daily program. As a host family, you are the veteran’s “home base,” offering lodging, breakfast daily, occasional dinners, as well as transportation to a daily meeting site and from a pick-up point. There are events that require your attendance, but, trust us – you won’t want to miss any opportunity to be with your Veteran. Most importantly creating strong familial connections with the veteran. Hosting is a rewarding experience enhanced by sharing responsibilities with your chosen Buddy Family.

Buddy Families

Buddy families support the host family. You participate in all aspects of welcoming your veteran without providing housing.
