How Shanti Reduces Isolation and Enhances Health & Well-Being
Decades of Compassion
Founded in 1974 by Dr. Charles A. Garfield at the UCSF Cancer Institute, Shanti was one of the first volunteer organizations in the United States to provide support to people with life-threatening illness. From our earliest days, Shanti has shined a light on the invisible suffering that accompanies illness and isolation.
