The Program for Torture Victims (PTV) assists the courageous immigrant survivors of torture, persecution or other human rights abuse who have stood up for freedom, equality and human dignity. Since 1980, PTV has helped new U.S. refugees, seeking asylum from over 70 countries, heal their physical and psychological wounds, and start a second life here in California. The first human rights health organization of its kind in the country, PTV pioneered comprehensive medical, psychological and social services that empower refugees to heal, become self-sufficient, and work toward recreating a purposeful life in California. PTV has offices in Los Angeles and Santa Ana.

PTV currently raises about $450K from the private sector with a strategic plan to significantly increase individual support through major gifts and bequests during the next decade.
