Spring Cleaning? We Take Donations For "Sanctuary...A Place Of Refuge"

Sanctuary Philosophy:

The most fundamental need of people on the street is something that most people take for granted; ­ a meaningful place in a healthy community, a sense of belonging. Without it, drug rehab, housing or employment programs have little effect. Without it, people remain trapped in a lifestyle that is difficult to escape. When people don't feel like they belong, they just can't seem to recover. For most people on the street, their experiences of community have been dysfunctional at best. Rather than simply duplicating social services, Sanctuary provides a unique, healthy community - a safe place. We say: "If you're willing to share your life with us, we'll share ours with you. We'll encourage you when you mess up, help you find direction when you're not sure which way to go, hold you when you're hurting, and help you discover, strengthen and focus your gifts and abilities. We're here for the long haul." It's not uncommon for people in the Sanctuary community to tell us, "You're the closest thing that I have to family."

Sanctuary Street Outreach Program Info:

Sanctuary Street Outreach teams meet members of the community on their turf ­ the streets and alleys where they exist. Often out late at night, the teams offer recognition and companionship to people who are often ignored or rejected by society. People recognize and expect them on a consistent basis. In addition to offering food and drink, some teams also provide basic health care as well as sleeping bags, coats, and socks. The Street Outreach teams are small - usually only two people. Recognizing that many people on the street have experienced more hurt than help from well-meaning organizations, Sanctuary approaches outreach carefully. Without imposing a particular morality or theology, Sanctuary members aim to live their lives with the people of the community.
