Sanctum is a NGO formed in 2015. It is made up of interagency professionals who work directly with populations affected by HIV, addictions, mental health issues, homelessness, and poverty. Often, chaotic lifestyles of this affected population limit the care they receive.

Although we have made great strides in the last 2 years, we continue to see that the population group that is most in need of specialized care and treatment is also the population group least likely to access care and treatment. The reason for this is often the intersection of the social, psychosocial and environmental factors of the affected population group.

Our philosophy is that substance abuse is like any other disease; therefore, we have an obligation to help the client manage it. Sanctum’s client centered approach uses a comprehensive set of interventions with the strategic support of local health and social service organizations. Together with our strategic partners, we can maintain patient programs to limit the negative impact of HIV on the broader community and treat those people who have HIV in an effective manner.

Sanctum believes that providing a hospice service to this vulnerable population group, gives a location to multiple agencies to provide care and treatment with dignity and in a safe and secure home environment. Sanctum closes the gap between the population group and the service they need.
