Each year, SABF helps victims and their children build safe and productive lives by offering a range of high quality services to meet their complex needs. These services include ministry, social services, educational outreach, and economic stability services. Sanctuary also works to end domestic violence and its far-reaching impact through outreach, education, and advocacy. Moreover, due to the expansion of community needs we also offer community initiatives that serve the elderly and teen population within the community.
