The Sanctuary

The first program created, The Sanctuary is currently a group of 11-18 year olds and professional artists/musicians who express themselves through art and provide artistic events to build community, being a part of an artistic project bigger than one person can create. Eventually the goal is to create an arts-centered after-school program designed for those who don't fit in the traditional after-school program.

Maker Story Decor

Maker Story Decor is a program that provides mentors, workshops, and an opportunity for at-risk teens/foster teens/adults with developmental disabilities to create a job as a maker: a job that is not traditional, allows them to keep their benefits, work as many (or as few) as they want/need, and use the creativity/distrust of authority to think differently and create something of worth. and value.

Rebel Redemption

Rebel Redemption is a program that brings together the mentors for the other programs, adult artists/musicians/makers in the community, and other "broken and left out" adults that want to be trained/mentored to give back to the community.  The meetings take place at local coffee shops and restauraunts in order to build relationships with each other, encourage each other in their art, and provide the training/information that they need to give back to the community either through City of Refuge Inc or on their own.
