Some people residing in the U.S. may have experienced torture in foreign countries.  These people may be U.S. citizens, refugees, asylees, immigrants or other displaced persons.  ORR is committed to providing culturally competent services to torture survivors in order to restore their dignity, identity, and well-being as they rebuild their lives.  Each fiscal year, ORR administered approximately $11 million in grant funding to the Services for Survivors of Torture program (SoT).

This program is an important part of ORR’s initiative to promote emotional wellness.  ORR strives to strengthen the connections between the SoT program and other components of the refugee resettlement program.

Online Resource Center

www.HealTorture.org is the new online resource center created for programs serving torture survivors, individuals wishing to learn more about serving this population, and for survivors looking for information and services.
