Project Sanctuary is a therapeutic military family program that focuses on the needs, challenges, and concerns that our military families face every day. We work with veterans, active-duty service members, and their families with our exclusive three part A.R.T. program, combining counseling, education, self-development, and recreational therapy to help build well-adjusted families. We assist the military service members by helping them heal from the effects of war, providing a safe place to heal, helping reconnect the family unit and treating all members of the family at their level of need—which enables the service member to reintegrate into their family and community successfully. Our programs focus on the entire family's mental health and well-being first as we take them through the steps towards creating a sustainable balanced and thriving family– and life.
