The Sanctuary Model

7 Sanctuary Commitments

All programs at Hallmark Youthcare use the Sanctuary Model. The Sanctuary Model® represents a theory-based, trauma-informed, trauma-responsive, evidence-supported, whole culture approach that has a clear and structured methodology for creating or changing an organizational culture. The model works to provide a safe, supportive, secure and therapeutic environment to promote healing while building on the strengths of each child.

The objective of such a change is to more effectively provide a cohesive, innovative and creative context within which healing from psychological and social traumatic experience and adversity can be addressed – for all of us, which is why all staff and children use this model. Youth, families, community supports, and all staff participate and practice the 7 Sanctuary Commitments each day:

1. Nonviolence

Being safe outside (physically), inside (emotionally), and with others (social), and doing the right thing (moral).

2. Emotional Intelligence

Managing our feelings so that we do not hurt ourselves or others.

3. Social Learning

Respecting and sharing the ideas of our teams.

4. Shared Governance

Shared decision making.

5. Open Communication

Saying what we mean and not being mean when we say it.

6. Social Responsibility

Together we accomplish more; everyone makes a contribution to the organizational culture.

7. Growth and Change

Creating hope for our youth and ourselves.

TESTIMONIALS

Our Happy Clients

  • "I went here in 2017 and I was on a bad path. It changed my prospective and I myself was very pleased with my outcome. I had a very great therapist and great staff councilors at the time also."
    Hannah Holman
  • "My niece went here and the program was so helpful for her! She had a great therapist and she has made so many changes. I recommend this program to anyone who is having challenges with a child they love!"
    Victoria Bishop-Ofsowitz
  • "I give this 5 stars, not because we never had any issues, but because when we did, they were always addressed and taken care of. My daughter was in a specialized program that really met her needs and her therapist Ali was so involved and hands on and really helped my family and my daughter! We're glad she went here."
