Project Title:

Healing Children Program

Grant Amount:

$7,600

The Center for Survivors of Torture (CST) exists to facilitate healing, ease transition into new beginnings, and foster hope in survivors of trauma, by providing specialized services addressing their comprehensive psychological, medical, and social needs; generating legal referrals; providing training opportunities for state-of-the-art professional service delivery; and collecting outcome measurements.

The grant will be used for the Center’s Healing Children Program, which provides access to web-based telehealth and virtual counselling services for child victims of torture. The funding will ensure that upwards of 200 refugees and asylum seekers have the technology and internet service needed to connect with therapy sessions, art classes, legal advising, and other essential CST programs.
