The Sundari Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit, non-denominational public charity, dedicated to the education, advancement and social inclusion of poor, disadvantanged and homeless women and children. The first initiative of the Foundation was the establishment of the Lotus House Women’s Shelter in the heart of Overtown, Miami, an area suffering from profound poverty and urban blight in one of the poorest large cities in the United States. Lotus House is a unique women's resource center and residential facility serving women who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, whether due to domestic violence, untreated medical or mental illness, disability, loss of employment, or other economic reasons. For many women, it is the shelter of last resort, as time spent in temporary shelters does not afford them an opportunity to address untreated medical and mental health issues, obtain employment, and save the funds needed to secure affordable housing. This is not a typical short term shelter, but a place where the minds, bodies and spirits of women most in need are nurtured and supported to empower them to improve the quality of their lives on every level, achieve greater self sufficiency, and transition to permanent homes off the streets.

The Lotus House Women's Shelter is a unique, immensely supportive community environment for homeless women in Miami-Dade County. It provides not only a place to stay and food to eat, but also one-on-one daily wrap around services with each guest in order to help these women gain steady income and become self-sufficient with stable housing and resources. I have personaly seen women who were left with nothing as the result of domestic violence, illness or poverty go through Lotus House's program to obtain housing and dependable income. Lotus House is helping women daily change their lives and get back on their feet. It is a wonderful organization.
