Volunteer to help military families reconnect. Project Sanctaury provides 6 day therapeutic retreats for military families. We support our families with a mix of communication classes, Financial classes, and Post Traumatic growth classes and high adventure activities geared for the entire family. Our volunteers help take the pressures of everyday life off our families so the can focus on each other.

Volunteer duties include meal prep, light housekeeping. setting up activities, and helping our Certified Recreational Therapists in the youth program in 2 hour blocks of time. Lodging and meals are provided.
We believe that if one serves, the whole familiy serves. Deployments, being medically retired, caregiver roles, and managing conditions such as PTSD take a toll on the family structure and we are here to support the entire family and equip them with tools to face these challenges together.

We have multiple retreat locations in the US throughout the year. Please visit our website for more information and a current schedule of retreats.
