Sharing Sacred Spaces is a community-building non-profit focused on bridging differences through dialogue, education, hospitality, and most uniquely and importantly, architecture. The organization currently runs programs in three cities and has a steady flow of virtual events that bring 100-200 people together several times per month. We have a fast-paced and deadline-driven environment as we continue to gain members and expand while we also sustain the quality and attention to our current initiatives.
