About usCalifornia is the asylum capital of the Americas. Every year, more than 75,000 human rights activists, war survivors, ethnic and religious minorities, gang/cartel victims, LGBT survivors, and other displaced immigrants flee violence in their home countries to resettle in California. These refugees uproot their lives and disrupt community and family ties to seek freedom and safety. Many arrive penniless having spent their life savings on a perilous journey to get to the US. Many are broken mentally and physically but aren’t eligible for health coverage or other benefits. Many refugees struggle with a new language, the challenges of a new country, and the bureaucracy of its systems. PTV restores the health and human dignity of survivors of human rights abuse, providing critical assistance to more than 400 refugees annually. As the pioneer in human rights abuse rehabilitation, we have developed an integrated and comprehensive approach that encompasses a full spectrum of needs. Committed to survivors’ well-being and care, we have partnered with some of the region’s leading health and legal service providers, including the Eisner Health Family Medicine Center, St. John’s Well Child & Family Center, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, Public Counsel, and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, among others.
