SABRA's purpose to to provide a safe haven, intervention services, life skills education, court advocacy, child advocacy, counseling, and transitional assistance to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and to maintain the support from our communities, as well as local, state, and federal agencies.

Our mission is to help victims of domestic and sexual violence live a healthier and happier lives.

We at SABRA Sanctuary believe that no one deserves abuse. We provide an emergency shelter and free services to suvivors of abuse -- whether it is physical, emotional, or verbal. SABRA Sanctuary offers a warm, friendly, and most importantly, a safe place to stay, along with clothing, food, and personal items as needed. We assist them in transisitional houseing. A Case Plan is developed for every victim and the Case Manager helps to establish goals that can be met. A certified counselor is on staff at SABRA to help victims with emotional issues. A Court Advocate is avaible to accompany them to court if nessecary.

Understanding that education is the key to ending domestic and sexual violence, SABRA employs a Prevention Educator who teaches primary prevention education on domestic and sexual violence issues to Kindergarten through College aged students. The materials are approved by the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama Coalitions against domestic and sexual violence, as well as the Center for Disease Control. Materials are age appropriate and evidence based. Some of the topics covered are bullying, respect for self and others, anger menagement, healthy and unhealthy relationships, date rape and date rape drugs, and how to help a friend in an abusive relationship. These are all mutli-sessions from 4-9 sessions. Primary prevention efforts attempt to modify and/or entirely eliminate the event, conditions, situations, or exposure to risk factors associated with the initiation of violence and subsequent injuries, disabilities, and death. Additionally, prevention efforts seek to indentify and enhance protective factors that may prevent not only at-risk populations, but also in the community at large.

We are here for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse and their families 24/7; however, we look forward to the day when our services are no longer needed.
