An Update on the West View Sanctuary    

If you have a question , please contact us. If  you want to make a donation please visit our donations center

   There are currently 1.5 million children in America    who are without a home each year!
In Knoxville  there are many children and their families who are in desperate need of shelter space.  These families are living in cars, tents, and maybe on couches or other unsuitable environments.  This new building will help us help many of them.

Directors Corner

  • Update on the West View Sanctuary Since purchasing the West View Sanctuary in December, we have been working with architects, engineers, KUB and the City of Knoxville to gain the necessary approvals to renovate and move in. We have a fantastic team of professionals guiding us through the maze of requirements and considerations.  Tim Dunaway, our Board Member, has taken the lead.
