Helping Our Nation’s Heroes Finally Come Home

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Project Sanctuary takes military families from battle-ready to family-ready through outdoor, therapeutic retreats in a healing environment and ongoing family support services following each retreat. (EIN 26-1410596)

Every sanctuary starts with a solid foundation.

Project Sanctuary is dedicated to operating from a solid foundation to expand our retreat offerings to serve even more military families.

The best way to “support the troops”? Support the family — because the whole family serves, and the families become the “battle buddies” when our service members come home. Click here to join us in supporting Our Military Families!

Project Sanctuary supports our military families by providing therapeutic retreats, enabling the families to reconnect and reintegrate into their communities through education, innovative services, supportive follow through…and FUN! Of the hundreds of families who have attended our retreats, 90% are still intact; we happily report ZERO SUICIDES, and all servicemen and women who want to have a job are working. Simply put, our program works.
