Residential Sanctuary Model

Victor's Story

Every home should be a sanctuary. That is no less true for Victor, who lives at a JCFS group home along with other children who are healing from abuse or neglect. That is why JCFS adopted the Sanctuary Model, a proven method for working with children who have suffered trauma. This unique model allows everyone, from child care staff to children, to have an equal voice in daily life. Previously powerless in his own home, Victor is building trusting relationships, and with the caring guidance from JCFS’ child care professionals, is learning to advocate for his own rights with the confidence that he will be heard and respected.
