For individuals fleeing civil war, terrorism, and repressive regimes in their home countries, TASSC offers more than a peaceful refuge. Founded and led by torture survivors, it serves 330 clients (called members) each year, helping them apply for asylum and build new lives. Most come from Ethiopia and Cameroon, arriving with little more than the clothes on their backs. Together with a clinical case manager, they create a roadmap for their journey to recovery, including medical treatment (through on-site care and referrals), bilingual, trauma-informed counseling, and therapeutic activities like yoga, story-telling, art workshops, and more. A career counselor assists with job searches and resumé preparation, and staff and pro bono attorneys offer services to navigate the complicated asylum application process. Most importantly, TASSC restores in its members the belief that they are a welcome and dignified part of the human family.
