The use of Force, Fraud, or Coercion, for the purpose of exploitation

trauma informed care

Sanctum House treats the whole individual, by providing customized care, led by our Program Manager, Shannon Brandt, & Supervising Case Manager, Erica Watkins. Trauma Informed Care means that we:

Realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand paths for recovery

Recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in patients, families, and staff

Integrate knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices

Actively avoid retraumatization*


For many survivors of Human Trafficking, drugs and alcohol dependencies are a part of their trafficking experience. Maintaining and continuing to work on their sobriety plays a key role in the Sanctum House program.
