Sanctuary Model

The Sanctuary Model is an approach to creating a trauma-informed and healthy workplace. The model works to promote safety, healing and resilience for participants, staff, and programs/organizations.

The Sanctuary Toolkit provides a way to build capacity and practical skills that enable individuals and organizations to more effectively deal with difficult situations; build community; develop a deeper understanding of the effects of adversity and trauma; and build a common language.
