Our History

Sanctuary Incorporated of Guam (Sanctuary) is a private, non-profit community based organization that exists to provide critical social services to youth and their families. It was established in 1971 as an alternative to the juvenile justice system for runaway, homeless, neglected, and abused youth. Since its inception, Sanctuary continues to seek ways to improve the quality of life for Guam’s youth.

Our Vision

Sanctuary Incorporated of Guam is a community-based organization which exists to improve the quality of life for Guam’s youth to promote reconciliation during times of family conflicts, to foster the development of responsible community members, and to advocate for their needs in an effort to preserve family unity by providing: 24-hour crisis intervention services, temporary safe refuge during family conflicts and abuse, supportive counseling for youth and families, outreach, education and prevention programs.

Our Strategic Plan

Sanctuary Incorporated of Guam strategic plan process included two intensive planning sessions with our government & community partners, stakeholders, staff members, management team and our board of directors. The first phase of planning session in January 2020 focused on increasing organizational awareness, quality of service, community partnerships, maintaining financial health and prioritizing our programs. The second phase of planning in February 2020 took the next steps to define the goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely) and action steps Sanctuary will need to accomplish as an organization. The board determined a functional committee structure to ensure organizational accountability in the key areas of: financial stability, programming needs for today and the future, quality of service and community awareness.

As we conclude our 2020-2023 strategic planning process while we adapt to realities of the covid-19 pandemic, we remain undeterred as we continue to serve our island community to the best of our ability.
