Sanctum House is a long term residential program in Oakland County for women survivors of human trafficking. We offer 24-hour comprehensive care seven days a week. This includes full medical care, severe trauma and substance abuse recovery, education, life skills, legal aid and job readiness. In our community, we service the whole person, mind, body and soul.
Women come to our safe house from metro Detroit and all over the country. Our network is big and continues to grow. We work with local and state law enforcement, FBI, Homeland Security, county courts, hospitals and substance abuse recovery centers to find those who need this care, as well as the national hotline. As executive director, I’m proud of our reputation for quality of service, and for the healing culture we’ve created since opening three and a half years ago.
Human trafficking is happening everywhere. It crosses all socioeconomic strata. In our program, we’ve treated women from very wealthy families and those who grew up in poverty; women from every race and religion, ages ranging from 18-61.
