Women refugees from war zones have often faced a range of stress factors that are experienced by no other population. In their home country traumatic experiences may have included bombs, imprisonment, torture, and exile. The flight from their home is often fraught with danger and once in the country of exile, life still has its challenges.

Staff will assist with elevator between Lot #3 and Bellevue Towers on 106th.
