In celebration of Shanti’s 30th anniversary, it was our pleasure to work with them highlighting storys from clients and workers on what makes Shanti so special!
Shanti offers services for people living with chronic disease, including HIV/AIDS. Services include Mental Health therapy (individual, couples, or group), Case Management and connection to community resources such as transportation, housing, financial aid, and connection to medical and pharmacy resources. We offer extensive educational seminars specializing in a variety of topics related to living with chronic disease including HIV/AIDS.
Charles Garfield, the founder of the Shanti model in San Francisco in 1985 used the word Shanti, meaning “inner peace” in Sanskrit, to describe the model of volunteerism providing emotional support and assistance to people living with life- threatening illnesses. Our founders patterned our agency after this Shanti model, the first of its kind.
