Salus from house of ruth

Salus is a network designed to build connection and collaboration between everyone working to promote peace and support the health and safety of communities. Salus recognizes the variance and complexity of human experiences and that one size does not fit all; and yet, our successes are interdependent. Through a virtual community of practice forum, a resource clearinghouse, and online learning tools, Salus aims to bring together a variety of talent and perspectives to support community-driven solutions, the application of cutting edge research to practice, and an increased access to information around the globe.

Salus (pronounced sayŸlus) gets its name from the Roman goddess of safety and wellbeing – of both the individual and the state. The name represents both parts of our work: providing support services to increase the safety of the individual and challenging the attitudes and systems that perpetuate violence (the state).
