Sanctuary for Families

About Sanctuary for Families

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. We provide a range of wrap-around services to help survivors rebuild their lives in the aftermath of abuse, and work to end gender violence through three key strategies: direct services, outreach and training, and systems-change advocacy. Our services are available in 11 locations throughout New York City.

“I really like how organized and helpful everyone is. They not only love and have passion for what they do, but they take the time to explain and support you no matter what role you are playing on this team. They are like a big family, and they are all dedicated to their clients and work extremely hard. They included me in their meetings and let me participate in the CSATF NY Conference planning committee. I honestly could go on and on about how great this internship was to the point where I continued another semester with them.”
