The Three Keys for Verde Valley Sanctuary 

(where abuse ends and healing begins)

  • Empower victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
  • Expand services with three distinct phases, and incorporate a Trauma Informed Care Design.
  • Embrace a triple bottom line: peoplesustainability, and the planet

We are going GREEN and the benefits are compelling.

QUESTION: Could you share a bit about the Verde Valley Sanctuary?

For the past 25 years, Verde Valley Sanctuary has been quietly taking care of victims of domestic violence and sexual assault 24/7, 365 days a year. 

Our mission is to decrease the harm of domestic violence and sexual assault through awareness, education, intervention, advocacy and new opportunities. 

We offer a range of services free of charge to our clients:

  • 24 hour emergency hotline
  • Safe shelter
  • Legal advocacy
  • Counseling and action planning
  • Safety and exit planning
  • Youth education
  • Trauma support groups
  • Community workshops and customized presentations
  • Two Twice Nice Thriftiques (Sedona & Cottonwood) which directly support the needs of our clients and produce 20% of our annual operations income.

We are the only organization in the entire rural region dedicated to protecting, assisting and empowering victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault. We partner with numerous agencies to help families get the help they need.

QUESTION: How are things going for the organization? Any interesting developments?

This past year, VVS has experienced unprecedented demand for services. Some clients and children have had to stay in hotels because we didn’t have room at the shelter. We have had to hire additional victim advocates and therapists. The hotline calls have increased six to nine-fold over the past two years.

QUESTION: So, what is the organization going to do differently?

Our vision is to expand services with three distinct phases, incorporating a Trauma Informed Care Design.

Phase One: Renovate the main 24-bed shelter building to enhance beauty, dignity, functionality, and additional safety. 

Phase Two: Expand the shelter by removing the existing modular home with four bedrooms, and replace it with a three-story building to double the number of bedrooms for clients with special needs and pets. 

Phase Three: Build a Dignity Center (Personal Development Academy) and Transitional Housing. 

QUESTION: What about this vision is entrepreneurial in nature?

Our organization embraces a “triple bottom line,” whose pillars are peoplesustainability, and the planetWe are going GREEN and the benefits are compelling:

  • Reduce carbon footprint
  • Reduce operational costs
  • Enhance ability to deliver on our mission
  • Address global issues at a local level

(domestic violence, sexual assault, affordable housing, trauma, green/ sustainable operations)

  • Produce a green “ripple effect” 

QUESTION: What about the organization tells you that this entrepreneurial approach can be achieved?

VVS currently utilizes programmatic best practices along with operational transparency, effectiveness and long-range financial stability practices. 

The organization has more than 20 years experience in operating social enterprises which supply 20% of our annual income. 

The organization has 25 years of experience in our local communities, and we collaborate daily with all economic sectors to support client success.

What we aim to accomplish is a form of social entrepreneurship. This is more than a nonprofit purpose and more than an economic activity – it gives society positive world-changing solutions at a local level and at a time when we need them. 

This new venture vitalizes our commitment to the mission: Decrease the harm of domestic violence and sexual assault through awareness, education, intervention, advocacy and new opportunities; and prevent abuse.

We believe that a powerful vision and intention can elicit a better reality, especially when it truly aligns with who we are as an organization. 

We also believe that the resources will follow and produce a level of surprising prosperity for the clients and the communities we serve.

QUESTION: How can people and organizations across the nation help you achieve this entrepreneurial vision?

As you can imagine, providing financial support would definitely help us achieve our vision. Visit us at https://verdevalleysanctuary.org/support-us/

Please share any trustworthy resources for building and operating green and sustainably:

  • Funding (donors with a passion, foundations, government agencies)
  • In-kind and low-cost suppliers of green products and building materials
  • Innovative & Resourceful Expertise (Designers, Engineers, Contractors, Advisors, and leading-edge students who want an internship to build their portfolio)

Kindly keep us in mind with giving opportunities within your family, business and personal networks. We’ll put these valuable resources to great use, and they will ultimately help us with the green rippling effect. Thank you!

arms, severely deformed legs and a doctor’s prediction that he would not survive, Jeff spent his early years in
hospitals, including Shriners’ Hospital for Crippled Children in Philadelphia, PA; facing orthopedic surgery, learned
to walk with a brace and was fitted with his first prosthetic arm. At age nine, he was placed into The Good

As a young boy, Jeff learned the truth that would become the foundation of his life: “I am made to be awesome and
wonderful!!” (Psalm 139:14).

Jeff Steinberg sees his disabilities as assets, not liabilities. Jeff is living proof that, “…the difficult we do right away, the
impossible takes a little longer!” He travels the globe with a very special message; that a real handicap is “…anything that keeps
me from being or becoming all that I was created to be!” “Quit focusing on the handicap and start appreciating The Gift!”

of Guerilla Marketing; The Icon Builder David Fagan, The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and the list
goes on.
However, a true highlight of his career was a memorable appearance on stage with Mother Teresa of
Calcutta during her 1989 U.S. visit.
He has enjoyed speaking to Schools and Universities (including Notre Dame University), U.S Military troops in Europe and more.
In 1987 Jeff Steinberg was inducted into the Good Shepherd Hall of Fame for People with Disabilities for his achievements in
the field of music, for his advocacy on behalf of the physically challenged, and for carrying the message that everyone is a
Masterpiece in Progress

Eposode #71 Jared Yellin with Syduit

Jared Yellin – Synduit.com

Inside this episode

  • Why entrepreneurs should be willing to throw away good for the potential of great?
  • What has been your secret to scaling SYNDUIT without any outside funding?
  • What are you most proud about right now at SYNDUIT?
  • FREE GIFT from Jared link below

 

Jared Yellin is a serial entrepreneur that has consistently started companies to support small business owners and fellow entrepreneurs. His mission is to build and implement 1,000,000 annual plans with 1,000,000 changemaker entrepreneurs.
Jared has already supported over 100,000 small business owners over the past 10+ years and he brings a depth of knowledge on marketing that is not only diverse but is also extremely practical and proven. In fact, his no-nonsense style to marketing allows non-marketers to thrive when it comes to marketing their businesses.

He admits, “Yes, funnels serve a purpose. Yes, Facebook ads are important. Yes, tripwires can help you build your database. But without an annual marketing plan comprised of both education-based and relationship-based marketing, none of these tactics will create sustainable growth for small business owners.”

Outside of his role as the Founder of SYNDUIT, Jared prides himself on his number one value which consists of his beautiful wife, Lindsay, their precious daughter, Taylee, and their studmuffin of a son, Ryker.
