  • Domus again re-certified as trauma-informed organization


    We're proud of our entire Domus staff for again being certified by the Sanctuary Institute for creating an effective trauma-informed environment where our youth can heal from trauma. This is Domus' second three-year certification. All staff members receive ongoing, regular training in ways that we, no matter our job, can contribute to a climate where youth feel emotionally and physically safe. Special thanks to the Sanctuary Core Team of employees who led the certification process. Click here                                                                                   for more information about our trauma-informed approach.
