Certified by the Sanctuary Institute, theVillage utilizes The Sanctuary Model of Trauma Informed Care. This model serves as a blueprint for clinical and organizational change that promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community.

By embracing the Sanctuary Model, theVillage is able to create an environment that not only addresses the effects that trauma has upon its clients, but also the impact of vicarious trauma on theVillage’s staff. The Sanctuary Model allows theVillage to take a community-as-a-whole approach to healing by developing structures, processes and behaviors to address the ongoing impact of trauma and extended exposure to adversity.
