Community Guidance Center began the journey toward Sanctuary Institute certification in 2014.  The Sanctuary Model® is a  "...theory-based, trauma-informed, trauma-responsive, evidence-supported, whole culture approach that has a clear and structured methodology for creating or changing an organizational culture."  We are proud to announce we achieved Sanctuary certification in 2019!  As one of the few Sanctuary-certified mental and behavioral health providers in our region, we look forward to continuing to provide a welcoming, caring, safe, positive and enriching environment for our consumers, our family of employees and the communities we serve.
