The core of our mission is to provide specialized trauma counselling for refugees who have endured violence or trauma before re-settling in Canada. These experiences can have a devastating effect on an individual's mental health, and their ability to gain and keep employment, provide for their family and build a new life in Canada. $50 will provide an hour of trauma counselling at VAST for one person, and the opportunity for a newcomer to work with our experienced staff in a safe, healing and welcoming environment.
