Sanctuary, our 19-bed hospitality program will provide a safe and welcoming space for youth and young persons who are experiencing houselessness. Our admission process is simple and less frustrating than many others. Through the generosity of the larger community, we pride our success on not applying for Federal/State and City funding that comes with miles of regulations. Sancturay does follow all guidelines for "shelter operations" for the safety of our guests.
Operating with the idea of hospitality, one of the largest industries in our city, we strive to provide the same care and love one would experience in one of our many lodging establishments. With a really cool caviot, our guests, once they secure permanent housing has the option of taking their funiture and furnishings along with them as they establish their new independence.
Sancturary provides individual space for our guests, including a twin-size bed, dresser, mirror, lock-box, chair, lamps and a rug. We also provide linens, and personal hygene products. Other ammenitites of Sancturay include a lounge, free-laundry facility, kitchen, study space, computers, printers/scanners and internet.
