About Soul Sanctuary
SOUL SANCTUARY OF THE DESERT’S
Soul Sanctuary in the Desert is a unique volunteer driven non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization. Dedicated to actively working with at-risk families to break the generational cycle of substance abuse and domestic violence through its support of women and children. Some transitional housing programs are established as for-profit businesses, grouping three to four adults in each bedroom to maximize income. Women with small children are often unable to find space and support within this type of transitional living program. With this knowledge in hand, in 2004 Soul Sanctuary opened its first non-profit housing program for women, allowing mothers and children to have their own bedroom and personal space.
Women participating in the program are required to address their personal issues of addiction and co-dependence, and to demonstrate continued progress and development during their enrollment. Programs range from six months to two years and are focused on helping the women meet specific goals such as getting a job, attending a trade school or completing an associates degree.
