These five volunteers are leaving their mark on Sanctuary

Every year, over 2,000 volunteers make it possible for Sanctuary to provide life-saving service to survivors of gender violence throughout New York. On May 5th, we’ll honor five longtime volunteers and celebrate all of our incredible volunteer support at our annual Pillars of Change Volunteer Recognition.
