Community Involvement

We Rise By Lifting Others

At Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, we believe in giving back to the community in which we live and work. We are committed to giving back to those in need of housing, warmth, and food, including our four-legged friends. Giving back to the community builds hope and self-worth, teaches us compassion and acceptance and results in a better community for everybody.

At Sanctuary, we are supporting these local charities:


Annee and Gracee

Animal Friends Rescue Project

From March 1 to December 31, Sanctuary Vacation Rentals will donate $5 per pet-friendly rental up to $5,000 to AFRP. Gracee is a 1 year-old shelter puppy that owners Annee and David adopted from AFRP after she was found wandering the streets of Salinas in pretty bad condition. She was given a tremendous amount of attention, love and care from her foster parent family and their five dogs, so much so that she has no fear of anyone or any dog and wags her tail at everyone she meets. Gracee has been proclaimed the Sanctuary ambassador of goodwill and joy because everyone she touches is left feeling better.

Community Human Services

Community Human ServicesCommunity Human Services is a 501c(3) public nonprofit and Joint Powers Authority providing substance abuse and mental health counseling and recovery services to middle and low income individuals and families in Monterey County, California.

Virtually all of the work we do at CHS addresses underlying conditions or root causes of personal, family and community problems, whether it’s addiction, domestic violence, mental illness, emotional health, homelessness, child abuse, or any number of problems that people have trouble solving on their own.

We help our clients develop new skills and support networks, learn new behaviors, and learn how to utilize community resources. Ultimately, our services affect change in the community by reducing the need for social services, law enforcement, hospitals, jails and prisons, and by improving school attendance, performance and social outcomes for children.
