Sanctum recognizes the need to provide care with humility and without prejudice.
Each year our Host Committee chooses a charity to showcase during our conference. To further our theme of “Community Partnerships & Engagement”, the Saskatoon Board of Police Commissioners has chosen Sanctum 1.5, part of the Sanctum Care Group to support during this year’s conference.
ABOUT SANCTUM 1.5
Sanctum 1.5 is a 10-bed prenatal care home which supports high-risk and HIV positive pregnant women at risk of having their infants apprehended at birth.
Sanctum’s vision is to provide a community for individuals requiring supportive care to attain their optimum level of health, while maximizing their control and dignity. Incorporating existing community services in Sanctum’s safe and supportive environment, the prenatal home will work preventively to meet the health and social needs of these women more effectively and efficiently which will improve the health and wellbeing of mom and baby while also mitigating the risks associated with apprehensions of infants at birth.
Through the collaboration of health and child welfare, Sanctum 1.5 will reduce the financial burden on the healthcare system and more importantly the long-term detrimental impacts on children involved with the foster care system. Sanctum 1.5 will achieve this by eliminating the current fragmented model of care provided to high risk and HIV positive prenatal mothers by incorporating the right services at the right time to allow for the necessary health and social interventions to have the most effective outcomes
There will be several opportunities to show your support for this unique and important organization during our conference but in the meantime, please visit their website to learn more.
