Interested in hosting an event to benefit Sanctum House? Your community support is vital to helping residents rebuild their lives. Raise awareness of human trafficking and trauma-informed care, risks to vulnerable populations, and mitigation efforts. Contact our Chief Marketing Officer, Jennifer Baenziger, to get started!


Sanctum House has an opportunity to triple its capacity, without moving. Sanctum House is located on a healing campus several acres large, with the remaining two residential facilities available for purchase.

3x Capacity

Sanctum House would be able to serve more than 30 Residents at a given time. The private property, comprising three individual buildings, encompasses our beautiful backyard and gazebo space. Sanctum House currently leases one of these buildings.

Apartment-Style Housing

Transitional, apartment-style housing will help Residents practice their independence. Easing the process of reintegration can increase the chance of success for survivors, while better preparing them to live independently.

Commit To The Future

By owning this property, Sanctum House will be a more stable foundation for future human trafficking survivors. This investment would drastically improve our ability to serve Michigan and reduce our financial costs over the long-term, yielding a more sustainable program.

Generosity in the form of useful goods and services help Sanctum House, but also enable our Residents to exercise their independence, and strengthen their relationships with community members. Gift Cards are particularly useful, as they can provide survivors the opportunity to exercise their independence.
