Trinity Without Borders was created in June of 2006. Having started out as a grass roots effort to connect disadvantaged people and families with services and resources, it has embraced the challenge of evolving into a full service organization. With the combined dynamics of an overloaded social service system and limited resources, Homeless single parents with children and families are the majority of the population we assist. With a Holistic approach, Trinity is taking the lead on implementing new approaches to addressing Homelessness among families and single parents. We feel healing comes to the disadvantaged in many forms.
Below is Sandra Legrow, who is a faithful volunteer and has brought a tender, loving care goodness to the women and children of Sanctuary in the form of teaching them crafts and friendship. Here she instructs us in the art of dollmaking.
Our Kiddos have classes especially designed for their interests as well as for their safety. They participate in 'Stranger Danger', 'Healthy Hand Hygiene' and the ones they love the most-
'Art from the Heart'-at Sanctuary
Gini Hyman of the Sarasota Commission on the Status of Women helped our Homeless and At-Risk by going shopping for the kids!
Thanks to the Venice Baseball Challenge for sharing the Holiday spirit of giving with our Sanctuary kiddos!
Thanks Diana Hamilton!
She 'only' wrote a letter to the editor about helping Homeless kiddos have a nice Christmas...She found herself knee-deep in shopping for 40 children and I believe she loved every minute of it!
Even the Parents were waiting to see Santa Claus..
Santa Claus was scheduled to come in by helicopter. The drama was at the top when it was reported that winds were preventing Santa from landing...Fortunately, he got a ride in on a boat and the kids AND parents were able to breathe again!
The family featured in the story above are a classic example of why Trinity Without Borders needs your help. A local citizen stepped in with employment for the father of this family of five and they have since been able to move into a home with their three children. Single parents and families with children have found their way back into the workforce and into homes they can sustain, through our dilligence at close case management and seeking all resources available in the private sector.
Megan came to us asking how could she help. She has since become the volunteer that could! Helping us to grow from a grass roots street outreach to a place single parents and families find refuge and hope. Though it has been an uphill journey for all of us, Megan has embraced the challenge and become an integral part of our mission being accomplished. Thanks Rainbow!

So many caring people in Sarasota came forward to show their support of Homeless and At-Risk children in our area. Even other kids made efforts to collect gifts and such for those without homes.
