The Home for Little Wanderers is a Boston based organization dedicated to ensuring the healthy behavioral, emotional, social and educational development and physical well-being of children and families living in at-risk circumstances. In 2010 The Home invited LFY to Boston to train a group of staff members in yoga and mindfulness skills, and launched a very successful pilot program at one of it’s group homes for teens.
The Home runs seven group homes for children with a wide range of challenges, and is working to expand access to yoga to all of them. If you are a yoga teacher in the Boston area and would like to help, please CONTACT US for more information.

Sanctuary for Families is a vital organization that provides shelter and support to victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking. Women and children who have suffered abuse have often had their spirit battered along with their bodies, and rebuilding their sense of trust, self-worth and capacity for joy is a crucial component of their recovery.
Yoga can be a wonderful gift to those who are recovering from abuse, and Little Flower Yoga has partnered with Sanctuary for Families to offer women and children classes that they otherwise would not have access to.
Sanctuary for Families serves thousands of women and children, and we would love to share yoga with all of them. If you are a yoga teacher and you are interested in joining us in this work, please contact us. If you would like information about volunteering with SFF in other capacities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
