This video features ANDRUS in Yonkers, New York, a family-centered community-based organization that provides stability, security, support, and hope for children and families of all cultures. ANDRUS has transformed its trauma-informed and trauma-responsive model and developed a set of interactive tools that help children, families, and organizations cope with emotional, relational, psychological, and physical trauma.
ANDRUS embraces equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) every single day through the Sanctuary Model. EDI informs and influences their programs and services on their campus and across the New York area. They recognize that the road to an equitable society is a journey that requires more than policy and procedure. ANDRUS’ vision is that their communities are a place where all children and families thrive. They are passionate about getting people to understand, learn, and celebrate each other's differences. This powerful legacy of service and sanctuary brings hope for a future made better through EDI.
