Veterans' Sanctuary

The Veterans' Sanctuary works to create a peer-based, residential program to support Iraq and Afghanistan veterans as they transition from combat to civilian life. The organization provides a new path toward addressing veterans’ issues with tools for transformation, holistic wellness programs, expressive arts, farming, green job training, and community living.

Veterans' Sanctuary offers two programs for returning veterans: a farming program and the combat paper programs. The farming program offers veterans opportunities to grow vegetables and medicine as well as the opportunity to raise chickens. The combat paper program enables war veterans to turn their uniforms into paper, used for art or writing. In addition to the farm, Veterans' Sanctuary has built an art studio from scratch and continues to collect the necessary equipment to host papermaking, bookbinding, and printmaking workshops.
