Why Sanctuary for Families

Since our founding in 1984, Sanctuary for Families has grown to become New York’s leading service provider and advocate for survivors of gender-based violence operating in all five boroughs of New York City.

What started as a small group of volunteers, has expanded today to a diverse team of over 200 compassionate, creative, and mission-driven attorneys, social workers, shelter aides, economic empowerment specialists, administrators, data specialists, and more, all of whom work to provide life-saving services to thousands of adult and child gender violence survivors every year.

At Sanctuary, we know none of the important work we do would be possible without our committed staff. We care deeply about each staff member’s professional development, health, and wellness.
