The #Live4Love Initiative is grounded by the Sanctuary Model; a trauma tool used to promote healing while modifying at-risk behavior. 

The Sanctuary Model originated in the Philadelphia area in the early 1980s with a team of clinicians led by Dr. Sandra Bloom.

Today, after over twenty years of adaptation the Sanctuary Model is being used across a wide range of settings, including: residential treatment, juvenile justice, drug and alcohol treatment, school and community-based programs, partial hospitals, domestic violence and homeless shelters.
