We are Sanctuary Certified!


Adelphoi has become a Sanctuary Certified Organization by the Sanctuary Institute, a division of Andrus Children’s Center, New York.  The Sanctuary Model of Trauma-Informed Care is designed as an organizational culture intervention to facilitate the development of structures, processes, and behaviors on the part of staff, clients and the community-as-a-whole that can counteract the wounds suffered by the victims of traumatic experience and extended exposure to adversity.  The process takes several years, and results in agency-wide cultural changes that include shared decision-making and shared responsibility in problem-solving and conflict resolution.  Utilization of the Sanctuary Model leads to decreased staff turnover, decreased use of coercive measures, decreased critical incidents, staff injuries and youth injuries, and greater youth and staff satisfaction.
