“Sanctuary of Hope helps to bring young people in culturally underserved communities such as myself resources, education and mentorship when we need it most. I met Janet Kelly of SOH at the start of college where she offered me a financial solution to support my educational journey. I am extremely grateful to Janet Kelly and all of the staff members of Sanctuary of Hope because if it weren’t for them providing the resources that I needed, I wouldn’t be standing anywhere close to where I am standing today.”
“A promising future is more than thriving. It's living in the moment every second and minute of the day. The work we do everyday at Sanctuary of Hope is aimed at helping youth realize their potential and to address life circumstances head on with an optimistic futuristic outlook.”
