HOW HOPE GROWS

At the Boston Center for Refugee Health & Human Rights all of our clients are victims of torture and have faced persecution in their home countries. Though they may be safe after arriving in the United States, their trauma stays with them.  Hopelessness, depression, and PTSD are crippling side effects that impact their ability to rebuild their lives. The longer our clients are in our care, working with clinicians, career developers, and our highly trained staff, the faster their symptoms reduce. While our clients begin to heal from their traumas, their sense of confidence, happiness, and hope grows. 

The hearts represent the most fundamental parts of ourselves, the parts that help us heal and live everyday looking to the future.

WHAT IS OUR GOAL?

We are making a call to action and asking for YOUR support. Your donation will help us continue serving our clients in a holistic manner, and by supporting us you are helping us to continue to raise awareness and educate the community on the refugee experience.
