Welcome to the Sanar Wellness Institute!

The Sanar Wellness Institute provides holistic wellness services to survivors of gender-based violence including human trafficking, sexual violence, and intimate partner violence through our resiliency initiative in a peaceful and compassionate environment. 

Sanar, meaning “to heal” in Spanish, is one of the first agencies to move beyond crisis interventions and focus on long-term healing. Services not only support survivors in processing trauma, but strive to prevent future incidences of violence through evidence-based practices. Sanar supports survivors in a nurturing and safe space with services designed to help each individual move beyond surviving to a life that is truly thriving.

 Sanar also offers a small suite of wellness-based healing services to local community members. 


The Sanar Wellness Institute opened its doors in Newark, New Jersey on November 2nd, 2015. Please  contact us for more information on services or referrals for wellness programs for survivors of gender-based violence.
