About Us

Verde Valley Sanctuary is a multi-service agency that responds to the presence of family violence and sexual assault in our community. The agency was founded in 1993 when a group of concerned citizens met, established a safe-home network, and began to develop and provide basic services.

Programs have been implemented in response to community need, and presently include:

  • Emergency shelter
  • 24-hour crisis hotline
  • Transitional housing
  • Community and youth outreach
  • Legal advocacy

Verde Valley Sanctuary is funded by public and private grants that are supplemented by donations and fundraising. Shelter is our most fundamental service, and fundraising efforts are primarily dedicated to sustaining that service. All programs are staffed with trained, paid employees.

If you are in danger, please call 911, local hotline 1-800-930-7233, or the U.S. National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or TTY 1-800-787-3224.
