Welcome to the Sanar Wellness Institute

The Sanar Wellness Institute provides transformational healing services to survivors of human trafficking, and individuals vulnerable to exploitation, while equipping communities with the necessary tools to create trauma-informed responses.

 Sanar, meaning “to heal” in Spanish, is one of the first agencies to move beyond crisis interventions and focus on long-term healing. Our programs work not only support survivors and communities in transforming the trauma of their past but strive to prevent future violence.
