Temenos is an off-the-grid, non-denominational retreat center located on Mount Mineral, in Shutesbury, about a half hour northeast of Amherst, Massachusetts.

Here at Temenos we remember our own sacredness, as we immerse ourselves in the quiet of the deep forest, and embrace with respect, all the woodland inhabitants within this naturally occurring temenos.

The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) is committed to providing help, hope, and a reason to smile, for New England cancer patients and their families by contributing financial support when it is needed most.
JAF was established to serve cancer patients of all ages throughout New England who are experiencing financial and emotional hardships as a result of a cancer diagnosis. Cancer-related income loss or reduction coupled with rising treatment costs can lead to financial stress as families struggle to cover their everyday expenses. JAF understands that crucial living expenses are not put on hold because of a diagnosis, and our Financial Assistance Program helps alleviate financial stress through the distribution of grants and gift cards to assist with rent/mortgage payments, utilities, food, and other household expenses.
JAF’s Financial Assistance Program provides one-time grants to cancer patients of any age in active treatment. Additionally, JAF believes patients and their families can greatly benefit from activities organized to help take their minds off of treatment, even if just for a little while. This belief forms the core of the Foundation’s (Up)Beat Opportunities – events and gatherings organized to provide patients and families with much-needed opportunities to relax and smile.
