Opening Doors for New Americans since 1882
NPR recently ran an interview with a forensic evaluator explaining the process of proving claims for asylum and why it's necessary to have medical professionals as part of that process. It's a great explanation of this core part of our work.
Link to the interview (and text version if you can't listen), titled "Before Obtaining Asylum, Refugees Must Show The Scars Behind The Stories" below.
We also provide psychological evaluations for our asylum clients. If you would like to join our cadre of volunteers providing this invaluable service, please fill out this form to be added to our contact list.
