The Western New York Center f0r Survivors of Torture provides immigrants and refugees, asylum-seekers, Holocaust Survivors and other survivors of extreme physical and emotional trauma and their families with holistic healing and recovery supports that help them to rebuild their lives.
The Western New York Center for Survivors of Torture (WNYCST) at JFS began in June 2014 to address the consequences of refugee trauma and political and state-sponsored torture experienced by survivors living in Western New York.
WNYCST is an intensive, strength-based, client-centered, care coordination model that supports individuals and their families in their healing process and empowers them through community-based collaboration.
With the help of our partners, Journey’s End Refugee Services, University at Buffalo Family Medicine and the student-led Human Rights Clinic at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine, WNYCST clients are provided with the care coordination, legal, medical, forensic and other therapeutic services needed to promote their healing process.
