We provide trauma-informed services to the refugee community in Summit County.

Trauma Systems for Refugees (TSTR) Model

Our program is a partnership with Boston Children’s Hospital through their Trauma and Community Resilience Center. We use the Trauma Systems Therapy for Refugees (TSTR) model that focuses on culturally responsive services and the reduction of barriers within refugee communities. This model includes both prevention services and treatment services.

We Serve the Local Refugee Community

We serve the refugee community through a culturally responsive lens and offer community outreach efforts using a designated cultural broker, who is part of the refugee community being served. Our cultural broker is also an integral part of our skill-based groups for youth in the refugee community and direct mental health services provided by professionals trained in the TSTR model.
