Rebuilding Lives Experiences

Together we help survivors of torture – heal.
To explain how you can help make healing possible, we offer, free of charge, monthly Rebuilding Lives Experiences, where you’ll hear powerful stories of hope and struggle, and ways to take action.
This is not a fundraising event.
This is your opportunity to hear from our staff who have first-hand experience supporting survivors of torture. And learn updates on progress and challenges facing torture survivors around the world.
Be our guest and see for yourself the sanctuary and healing provided at the St. Paul Healing Center after the physical and psychological trauma of torture and war.
Please enter the full name of any guests who will be joining you. Kindly include their email address(es) if possible so we may send them important event information.
Rebuilding Lives Experiences are intended for audiences age 16 and older. If you have additional questions about Rebuilding Lives Experiences, contact Alysha McClain at AMcClain [at] or 651.436.4820.
If you’re in the Atlanta, GA, area and would like a tour of our healing center there, contact Darlene Lynch at dlynch [at] or 404-402-1764.
