[Tuesday 11:02 AM] Smita DazzoHIAS and the AsylumWorks (formerly known as ASAP) have joined together to form the Capital Area Healing Coalition to serve refugees, asylum-seekers, asylees, immigrants, and other displaced populations who have survived state-sponsored torture. The formation of the Coalition provides an opportunity to rethink the traditional torture treatment approach to trauma treatment. The Coalition is grounded in the belief that Survivors of Torture (SOTs) are not defined solely by their trauma, and that community and social connection are essential components to healing and recovery. Our aim is to provide a supportive post-migration environment so as to reduce negative traumatic responses following torture. To do this, the Coalition provides SOT with holistic, strength-based, trauma-informed services including (1) wraparound legal services; (2) mental health services; (2) clinical case management; (3) employment services; (4) community engagement opportunities; and (5) volunteer accompaniment and mentorship. HIAS is leading and managing the Coalition with direct service support from AsylumWorks. Today, the Coalition provides a continuum of care unmatched by any organization operating in the region.
