About the Program for Torture Victims (PTV)
The Program for Torture Victims (PTV) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that rebuilds the lives of immigrant survivors of torture and persecution from over 70 countries who have stood up for freedom, democracy, and human dignity. The first organization of its kind in the country, PTV has helped heal the wounds of thousands of refugees through holistic health and wellness programs, empowering them to reenter society, reclaim their identities, and work toward a new life in the United States.
Mental Health Care
PTV provides an integrated approach to therapy appointments and our services include individual and family psychotherapy, psychological and psychiatric evaluation and follow-up care.
Basic Needs and Navigation
Case managers assess survivors for therapy and medical needs and link survivors to basic needs such as emergency cash assistance, food, clothing, as well as linkages to permanent housing and employment.
PTV provides medical and psychological forensic evaluations that assist survivors with legal asylum cases.
