What We Do

Services We Provide

Sanctuary is the state designated domestic violence shelter program for the Pennyrile region by the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence.  Sanctuary is also the state designated sexual assault program for the Pennyrile program by the Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs.

Emergency Services

We provide emergency services to victims of sexual violence and domestic violence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are in crisis, call now: 800-766-0000.

Domestic Violence Services

Our domestic violence services are delivered as part of a holistic program. Survivors are given the tools and support required to help them and their children rebuild their lives following domestic violence.

Sexual Assault Services

There are many forms of sexual violence. Each form has dramatic long-term impacts to survivors. Our sexual assault program provides survivors with the resources needed to reclaim their life.


Reducing Violence

Prevention Education

Domestic violence and sexual violence have devastating effects on communities. In addition to providing direct services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, Sanctuary is also committed to prevention education initiatives within our community to reduce the prevalence of violence.
