Located on the Eastside of Jacksonville, FL in the Springfield community, we provide a stimulating environment for inner city children and youth. Our After School Program and Summer Camp offer a wide variety of enriching and creative programs and activities, designed to minister the whole child, helping them develop into healthy, productive adults. The Sanctuary also offers a small Home School for elementary students, where each student receives scholastic support and enrichment activities. We’re proud of the intimate and close knit family atmosphere we have created for the children and youth attending our programs. Everyone looks out for one another. Hope Happens at the Sanctuary on 8th Street. We help our children find their way to productive futures and enable them to break the cycle of poverty and hopelessness so many have known for most of their lives.
