Family Gathering Highlights the Sanctuary Model Sanctuary Family Gathering at Collier Group Home in Redbank, NJ

Families of our residents gathered at the Group Home this Spring for our first Sanctuary Family Gathering.  The purpose of this intimate get-together of our residents and their loved ones was to help educate family members about the Sanctuary Model, which is being implemented within the Group Home and Collier House.  Sanctuary provides our young women with the tools needed to help identify and manage their emotions by creating a trauma-sensitive, democratic, and non-violent culture.  By helping families understand the Sanctuary Model philosophy, we hope to engage them so that they can begin to develop a shared common language and use the Sanctuary tools and ideas in their own relationships with their daughters – our residents.
