Sanctuary at Andrus Children’s Center
The Andrus Children’s Center in Yonkers, New York began working with Dr. Sandra Bloom in 2000. Working with a Core Team of staff members representing five levels of the organization, this team worked for two days a month for a year to begin the processing of understanding how the children In their care had been affected by trauma and adversity. In 2005, the Andrus Children’s Center sponsored the development of the Sanctuary Institute.
