Sanctuary’s emergency services program is designed to provide emergency services to victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault and their dependants. The program’s primary goal is to provide safety to victims and accompanying dependents. The program also aims to provide stability through the completion of a short-term safety and recovery plan with individual and group counseling services.
