Sanctuary for Families is New York's leading service provider and advocate for survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and related forms of gender violence. Every year, Sanctuary empowers thousands of adults and children to move from fear and abuse to safety and stability, transforming lives through a comprehensive range of services.
Sanctuary assists our clients in achieving safe and stable lives after abuse by providing a range of wrap-around services addressing their diverse needs. Last year, we served nearly 11,000 individuals through legal and clinical services, economic empowerment support, shelter and programming for children and youth.
Through outreach and trainings, Sanctuary educates over 16,000 concerned community members annually, ensuring that our communities are prepared to protect victims and prevent gender violence.
Informed by our work with thousands of survivors, Sanctuary is a leading advocate for legislation and public policies that promote freedom from gender violence as a basic human right.
