ABOUT US AT
VETERANS SANCTUARY FOUNDATION
Answering a Need
We are building a network of leaders looking to close the gap between Veteran and civilian skills, as well as guiding Veterans to life outside of military structure. Our goal is to provide a place where Veterans that qualify can visit the Sanctuary to decompress and work on new trade skills to help them ease back into society. They will have more opportunities for new careers and a better perspective for adjusting to life outside of the military. We would like to work with local agencies to give ideas on career paths and open doors for future work experience.
What We're Doing
We are leasing 10 acres of land in Linneus, Maine for the foundation to construct facilities and housing for the Veterans staying for the pre-apprenticeship program to be able to experience off the grid life with peace of mind. There will also be cabins equipped for Veterans with disabilities and their families to come experience all the same amenities. The land we are using will be for educating Veterans on careers as well as giving them a purpose during their stay to help reacquaint them to life at home. There will be recreational activities on the land such as fishing, camping, and archery. However there will be no firearms or firearm hunting on the land out of respect to our Veterans with PTSD and other adversaries.
