Don't Reach Out
Believing that when one person serves, the whole family serves, Project Sanctuary takes a human-centered, solution based approach to helping military families heal and move forward in life. Through innovative long term programming focused on consecutiveness, we restore hope and empower families to recover and thrive.
Why Veterans Tend Not To Get Help:
- They believe they can “get better on their own”
- Problems getting care, like finding a therapist, transportation or cost
- Stigma leads to negative labels/stereotypes, discrimination at work and being denied opportunities because of a PTSD diagnosis
Removing the barriers and building a network of support.
Project Sanctuary builds relationships on trust and creates an environment where the whole family can come together to begin their healing journey. We do this through two focus areas:
Therapeutic Retreats focused on counseling, education, and recreation.
8 states (CA, CO, GA, KY, MD, NC, TX, WA) around the US to remove geographical barriers
32 planned retreats annually
