Domestic Violence and sexual assault are extremely dangerous behaviors that are well known in our society, as well as around the world. Studies and research have shown that places of support through agencies can help restore and prevent repeating occurrences as well as support that is needed for growth. Sanctuary is a non-profit agency committed to the provision of preventive and restorative services to victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. Sanctuary has a vison to deliver caring, comprehensive support to victims of personal violence in the nine-county area of Pennyrile Area Development in Kentucky. Sanctuary seeks to empower through crisis intervention, peer support, victim advocacy, and community education. I hope in this paper to express funding for Sanctuary, the reason we need Sanctuary, define details of the organization, and educate about domestic violence and sexual assault.
