The mission of Sarah’s Inn is to improve the lives of those impacted by domestic violence and break the cycle of violence in order to improve the lives of those in future generations. With a network of supporters, volunteers, and partners, Sarah’s Inn accomplishes this mission through:

  • Comprehensive services for families to help them find safety, rebuild their lives, and heal
  • Legal and intervention services to help ensure protections for victims as well as to help educate offenders and promote accountability
  • Prevention programs to teach children and adolescents about how to cultivate healthy relationships
  • Training and education to promote an appropriate community response to violence

Founded in 1981, Sarah’s Inn has grown to become the largest and most comprehensive domestic violence agency serving Chicago and surrounding West Cook County suburban communities. The agency currently operates from a hub in Oak Park and six off-site locations throughout Chicago and West Cook County with the help of partner agencies and area courthouses.
