What's in a name?

In 1963 Shangri-La's founding families selected the name Shangri-La based on the utopian sanctuary described in the 1933 novel by James Hilton, "Lost Horizon". 

 

In the novel, the main character travels to Shangri-La and finds inner peace, love, and a sense of purpose.

Closely aligned with the ideals and environment these families wanted for their children, the founding families set to work creating their own Shangri-La by pooling their private resources and purchasing a 30-acre rural property just east of Salem, Oregon.

Still today, these ideals influence how services are delivered, and environments are created.
