Counseling Program
Refugee and Immigrant Support Services

Traumatic experiences such as torture and abuse can have profound and enduring effects on the human spirit. Valuing our clients' resiliency, determination, and dignity, we focus on empowering individuals to rebuild their lives and heal from the shattering impacts of trauma.


The counseling staff and volunteers at CLSACC come together to help people who may have lived through painful experiences in their home country or may be having difficulty adjusting to the United States. We provide specialized services for survivors of torture, victims of crime, and individuals affected by war and other types of human rights violations.
