The Sanctuary is a fun, stimulating and well-rounded neighborhood afterschool program for children in Springfield. We provide supervised assistance with homework, one-on-one tutoring in reading and math and access to computers.

Recreational programs, seasonal sports and playground time are part of our daily activities. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, other enrichment activities include art & crafts, holiday-related projects, monthly birthday parties, cooking, yoga, and more. Behavior modification and conflict resolution create new ways for interaction with others.

We typically have 45 children participating in our after school program, ranging in age from 5 to 17. They receive positive feedback and encouragement within a fun, but structured environment where they expand their view of the world and the possibilities that exist for them beyond their current circumstances.
