A “sanctuary” as a consecrated place and a place of refuge and protection. Historically speaking, all great religious, political and business leaders had a “sanctuary” – a place for deep thought, prayer, meditation, re-grouping, and refreshing.
“Sanctuaries” are also places for respite and restoration of those people who just need a break. Sox Place is a “sanctuary” for the street youth who come from around the country for a meal, a place to rest, a place to find themselves, and, at times, to find others. We, at Sox Place, believe that this is holy ground and a “sanctuary” for those who are rejected elsewhere. We serve to offer hope to those who need it.
