Rocky Mountain Survivors Center
Rocky Mountain Survivors Center (RMSC) is a nonprofit organization that assists survivors of torture and war trauma, and their families, to heal and rebuild their lives. The center offers asylum legal representation, healthcare and psychosocial services, is actively pursuing building the capacity of other providers to respond to the needs of torture survivors, and is building a community development component to the work. RMSC is profoundly impressed by the dignity, courage and resilience of survivors of torture- ordinary people who suffer extraordinary trauma, yet choose to recover- and seeks to work with the communities and families in which survivors live, to find ways to bring the effects of torture out of the shadows and into the healing light of day.
Trust and hope were destroyed through the human rights abuses perpetrated by a few people. Rebuilding trust and hope takes an entire community. Rocky Mountain Survivors Center invites you to learn more about the people we participate with and how you also can participate in the work.
