The Salem Foundation is a non-profit organization formed for the sole purpose of assisting Salem Christian Homes financially.

Nicky Coleman Fund
The Nicky Coleman Fund began when two long-time supporters of Salem started a memorial fund of their beloved nephew who suffered from muscular dystrophy. Nicky’s favorite times were when he was out in the community experiencing baseball games, amusement parks, shows–feeling part of society, regardless of his wheelchair. His loving aunt and uncle wanted to make sure Salem residents get the opportunity to visit fun and exciting places and not have to worry about the money to get there. Find out about the Nicky Coleman Fund and the opportunity you have to brighten the day of an individual with a developmental disability.
