HIAS and AsylumWorks have designed an integrated model that serves refugees, asylum-seekers, asylees, SIVs, immigrants, and other vulnerable populations who survived state-sponsored torture in their countries of origin. Our agencies have joined together to form the Capital Area Healing Coalition to support integrating our engagement, assessment, planning, monitoring, evaluation, and advocacy throughout the greater D.C. area. HIAS is leading and managing the Coalition and providing SOTs with legal services. AsylumWorks provides trauma-informed clinical case management services, employment assistance, and community support. AsylumWorks also provides training and technical assistance for SOT service providers and other helping professionals.
The Captial Area Healing Coalition is not a member of the National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs.
