The Sterling Rose Sanctuary Inc

We bring hope and healing to the brokenhearted.

Mission

The mission of The Sterling Rose Sanctuary is to help serve and undergird those grieving by helping people experience hope in their healing. The mental health crisis is real and is at an all-time high. Most people you encounter every day are dealing with some sort of trauma and loss, many of them carrying that trauma and loss for years or decades. One billion children suffer from trauma, and those children grow up to be adults. Trauma can be caused by the loss of a loved one, physical, sexual, emotional, or spiritual abuse or loss of a dream. We rely on generous donors to provide financial resources for those needing healing from trauma and pain.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We have been serving the grieving community since 2015. We have seen hope and healing restored where a spirit of grief was overshadowing the progress of living a healthy life. As we have served these remarkable people, we have seen a need to have a place where people can come for 3-5 days for Grief/Trauma Coaching, Mediation, equipping them with tools, strategies, and resources to manage their grief. One may ask, “Why does there need to be a place?” When a child passes, color leaves. We know it is important to have grievers in a place to introduce color back into their world. Quite often individuals are living in the house where the sibling or child had been residing. There are so many triggers around them it makes it difficult for them to breathe and process. Unfortunately, some of these individuals found their children in their homes due to suicide and/or overdose. We have seen getting the individuals away from their environment helps to promote and foster healing.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

There were over 80,000 deaths of children ranging in ages from birth to fifty-four in 2019. The Sterling Rose Sanctuary an established 501c-3, will be a non-denominational, multi-functional residence in Florida that will serve as a retreat center, lodging and healing space for those mourning the loss of a child, sibling or grandchild. Those attending will be able to reside for up to 5 days on-site, where they will receive Grief/Trauma Coaching, as well as tools and strategies to assist them through their grieving process. The Sanctuary will provide a place of respite where hope and healing can surround those grieving. Each individual, couple, or family will have one on one time to receive Coaching along with alone time to process, rest, relax, and walk the grounds. We will meet with them at specific times as agreed on during their stay. We desire to build bridges where grief causes barriers helping people to embrace grief to embrace life. In 2019 Suicide was the second leading cause of death for ages 10-34. Of those who committed suicide, 90% had been diagnosed with a mental health problem. And of those who died most all were struggling with complicated grief. Not having the tools, skills, and resources to mourn causes emotional, physical, and mental health issues. Statistically, once a family suffers the loss of one child, there is over a 50% chance they could lose another child in the next two years. The Sterling Rose Sanctuary is a solution to a growing problem. We want to help those grieving and help prevent the death of another family member. We see the Sanctuary for grievers becoming what the Ronald McDonald House is for families with sick children. While fundraising we continue to serve the grieving community daily offering hope and healing.

We are applying for grants and seeking every avenue to find the resources to help us purchase a property with a house and acreage for future growth. We continue to reach out to estate owners directly seeking a donation of a property as well as sharing our story with the community. We are using our social media platforms to inform, engage, and promote our cause in addition to having fundraisers online and in the community.

I have met with producers and publicists for T.V., Radio, and print to share our vision, goals, and progress. I have already had experience with the media and have cast a wider net for people to know what it is we are doing.

Aside from our fundraiser, we continue to serve all who are grieving, especially since COVID has thrust us into a "Grief Pandemic." We are boots on the ground providing the resources, tools, and strategies, to support them while providing the modalities allowing them to release the embedded pain and trauma.

To raise the necessary funds for a place we are seeking every possible avenue within our reach however, the majority of our time is used to serve those who are grieving. We have been told by multiple organizations the money we raised last year was incredible and we would only continue to see an increase as people learn about us. I am scheduled for some podcasts and interviews that will expose The Sterling Rose Sanctuary to new audiences.

We had a successful year of fundraising even though we were interrupted by the tragic murder of our second oldest son in October 2019 and then the COVID virus. We had to cancel planned fundraisers but have not let these obstacles deter us. As we know, death does not discriminate, and it will impact every life. Amid the brokenness around us, we need to learn the dance of grief and face the fractures it has imparted within our soul.

We have established a private, thriving support system for grievers online. We have great feedback and witnessed success for those we have had the opportunity to serve.

We have made headway within the media of T.V., radio, and print and expect there to be more opportunities to have our story heard while reaching a broader audience to serve and to support The Sterling Rose Sanctuary.

The next step is to try and secure the money and property this year. What a gift it will be for those who have lost a child, sibling, or grandchild to relocate for a few days to reset, rest, relax, and be equipped with resources.
