At the banquet, a Shalom Dove Award was presented to Rev. Velma Cruz-Baez, pastor of Pico Union United Methodist Church in Los Angeles--one of the original and only surviving Shalom Zones from 1992. Now known as "Mother Shalom," the historic site was recognized for its prophetic witness in South Central Los Angeles and for building Casa Shalom, a 30-unit apartment complex comprising two- and three-bedroom apartments, completed in 2006. The facility has a Head Start Center serving 100 children in three daily sessions and offers programs for residents and other community members.
