The mission of the Center for Victims of Torture is to heal the wounds of torture on individuals, their families, and their communities, and to stop torture worldwide.
We work toward this mission by:
- providing comprehensive care and rehabilitative services to survivors of torture and members of their families;
- conducting ongoing research on the long-term effects of torture and effective treatment and rehabilitation models;
- providing training to health care and human service professionals, educators, attorneys, immigration officials, and others whose work puts them in contact with torture survivors; and
- contributing to the prevention and ultimate elimination of torture through public education initiatives and cooperative efforts with national and international organizations.
CVT is based in Minnesota with offices in Washington D.C., Kenya, Jordan, and Ethiopia.
