The Seven Commitments of the Sanctuary Model

Amachi Pittsburgh is excited to announce that we are embarking on a journey to create a more trauma-informed and trauma-responsive culture.

By adopting the Sanctuary ModelĀ© –  a holistic organizational change process guiding the way we serve and operate – we hope to better support you, each other, and our community. Our goal is to foster and encourage a safe, nurturing environment for all members of the Amachi “family” to heal, grow, and thrive.

Be on the lookout for your invitation to our Sanctuary Kick Off Party where we will unveil Amachi’s plans, introduce you to the values and principles of the Sanctuary Model, and ask for your commitment in taking this journey with us. Remember, there is no “us” without “u”. We need U! This will be a fun family event with games, activities, and a delicious lunch. Watch your email for the invitation in the spring!

Together we can develop a deeper understanding of the effects of adversity and trauma and build a thriving community!
