LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Can I refer my child/client to your center?
The Center for Refugee Trauma and Resilience does not provide direct care to refugees with the exception of those who are identified as members of our demonstration projects. Following is a list of local resources that you may find helpful in finding services for refugee youth.

How can I volunteer to help out at the Center?
We are not currently accepting volunteers but will post any opportunities on the Boston Children’s Hospital volunteer website.

Can I donate money to the Center?
If you would like to donate to our Center please contact Olivia Pennock (857-218-3135) or at the Boston Children’s Hospital Trust.

What cultural and ethnic groups do you work with?
Our goal is to conduct research and services that will help refugees from all cultural and ethnic groups. Because we take a community-based participatory research approach, much of our work in the Boston area has been with the Somali community, with whom we have developed a strong partnership. We also have projects with Bhutanese and Iraqi refugees, and will continue to aim to inform services for refugee and immigrants from many cultural groups and communities.
