Volunteer of the Month [May]: Shalmar Nelson!


Shalmar works alongside our Teen Council as Co-Leader and also is a part of our Discipleship program.  She has been working with Hope House for at least 5 years and has been involved with Teen Council since it began.  Her favorite part of volunteering is the relationships she gets to develop with the other volunteers and with the young people at Hope House Detroit, and especially getting to see everyone grow as people.  In her spare time Shalmar likes to read, write, and travel.  An interesting fact about her is that although many young people can’t believe this, she didn’t start using a smart phone until this year!

Please make sure to congratulate Shalmar on being picked for Volunteer of the Month, & most importantly, thank her and all of our volunteers for all that they do!


  1. So good to see a young woman interested in and caring for others. May her influence be deep and far reaching!

  2. Congrats to Shalmar who not only blesses young people but brings energy and sunshine to our ministry and to our community. Just look at that smile! You see what I mean?
    Thank you, Shalmar!
