Description

Founded in 2004, Sundari Foundation, Inc. is a non-denominational, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women, youth and children experiencing homelessness by ensuring that they have the sanctuary, support, education and resources needed to heal, grow, and blossom into who they were truly meant to be. The first initiative of the Foundation was the establishment of the Lotus House WomenÂ’s Shelter in 2006 in the heart of Overtown, Miami serving homeless women. Utilizing an innovative, trauma-informed, holistic format, Lotus House provides shelter and multi-faceted, comprehensive supportive services, including access to medical and mental health care, parenting education, counseling and parent/child therapy, life skills and educational advancement, job readiness training, and a host of enrichment activities from art and acupuncture to yoga and meditation offering alternative pathways to healing. Today, as the largest shelter for women and children in the nation, we house over 500 women and children on a daily basis and over 1,550 annually, giving these fragile families the time and tools needed to heal, improving the quality of their lives on every level, helping them achieving greater self sufficiency, and assisting them transition to their new homes.
