Sanctuary Ministries

Sanctuary Ministries

Sanctuary is becoming a healthy, welcoming community where people who are poor or excluded are particularly valued.  We seek to establish and develop a holistic, inclusive and healthy atmosphere. We seek out people who have, for the most part, known only rejection and abuse. 

We offer dignity, support and direction to people who want to reclaim healthy, meaningful lives. Through drop-ins, street outreach and one-to-one relationships, we offer food, clothing and basic health care. Our staff help individual community members access welfare, housing, legal counsel, medical care, counseling, therapy or drug rehabilitation. Perhaps the most valuable thing we offer is simple friendship.
