The Sanctuary® Model
The Sanctuary® Model is a blueprint for clinical and organizational change which promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community. At the core of Sanctuary is the recognition that all people are susceptible to trauma - not only those who seek treatment, but also the people and systems who provide that treatment. Families And Children Together has adopted the Sanctuary Model as the basis for all of our programs to support our clients, our staff, and the community.
How We Use Sanctuary
Families And Children Together uses the Sanctuary Model to promote safety for our clients, ourselves, and our community. By changing our language from "What's wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?" we shift our focus from one of blame to one acknowledging the pervasive nature of trauma as a human experience.
