Our History

Sanctuary of Hope includes thirty-two acres of wooded land with a 100 year old building (once the Mount St. Joseph Home) located at 26th and Ridge in Kansas City, Kansas.  The property is leased from the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas.

In 1893, when the first building was used as a mental health asylum, it was to be a place to help the people of the community. It was called Home for the Insane. In 1899, it became the Grand View Sanitarium. In 1946, under the direction of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, it was named Mount St. Joseph Home.

It began as a place of healing for the people of Kansas City, Kansas and continues as such. 
It is our solemn pledge to keep it as a place for wounded souls and hearts to heal.
