Shanti is a Sanskrit word meaning "inner peace." Such peace can be cultivated through the authentic relationship that arises when compassion, intentionality, courage, and nonjudgment connect two people as equals.
Seattle Shanti, one of the first AIDS service organizations in Washington State, has served thousands of people with HIV/AIDS and their loved ones since 1983. Shanti also serves people with life threatening illnesses and people in recovery from addiction. Shanti's volunteer network and professional staff offer the following services:
Individuals living with life-threatening illness, grief or loss, or the illness of a loved one receive up to three hours a week of free, confidential one-to-one support from a trained volunteer.
Volunteers offer emotional support to residents and their families in hospice and skilled nursing facilities such as Bailey Boushay House.
Volunteers provide emotional support to inmates who are stigmatized and isolated through incarceration and/or illness at various prisons around Western Washington.
Volunteers provide one-to-one support to individuals living with Multiple Sclerosis using the Shanti Model of emotional support. Volunteers are connected with both Rosehedge/Multifaith Works and the Northwest Chapter of the National MS Society.
