Rebuilding Lives Experiences

See for yourself where hope and healing happen.
Each month you have the chance to virtually travel to one of the places around the world where CVT has a healing center. In less than 30 minutes, you will get a “behind the scenes” look at CVT’s work and see the impact of your investment in real life.
You will also meet Blaise, a torture survivor, and former CVT client who will share his story at the October 7th Virtual Restoring Hope Breakfast. He will put a face to the impact you make when you support CVT.
Whether you’ve never heard of the Center for Victims of Torture, or you’ve been involved for decades, you will see a new side of the organization and feel more connected to the survivors we serve.

Restoring Hope Breakfast 

The Restoring Hope Breakfast is the premier event in Minnesota that raises awareness and funds to support survivors of torture, war trauma and other mass atrocities in our community and around the world. We hope you will join us to hear inspiring stories of hope and healing.
