Mission Statement

The mission of Sarah's Inn is to improve the lives of those affected by domestic violence and to break the cycle of violence for future generations.

Description

For 40 years, Sarah’s Inn has been successful in providing community-driven services, and has grown to become the largest and most comprehensive domestic violence agency in its service area. Sarah's Inn, as a comprehensive domestic violence agency, approaches domestic violence as a societal issue that demands a holistic response. We are committed to programming that responds appropriately to the needs of those families already impacted by violence, as well as working proactively to prevent violence for future generations.

Sarah’s Inn has three core program areas. The Intervention Program provides services for families affected by domestic violence in order to safely navigate crisis, effectively process trauma and ensure self-sufficiency. The Prevention Program provides school-based educational programming for youth in order to prevent future relationship violence by giving them tools to lead healthy lives and empowering them to make a difference in their community. The Training and Education Program maximizes reach by creating a network of skilled bystanders to appropriately intervene as first responders and community advocates.
