GRANTS & DONATIONS
Connecting Cultures and New England Survivors of Torture and Trauma relies on donations and grants from organizations and private donors to continue programming support for refugee populations. Currently, we are funded by a number of grants and donors including:
The Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Office of the Administration for Children and Families: The Survivor of Torture Federal direct service grant helps to support direct psychological, social, and/or legal services to approximately 150 survivors of torture per year. NESTT has been a recipient of this important funding since 2009.
State of Vermont Department of Children & Families: This Vermont state grant was awarded to the Association of Africans Living in Vermont and Connecting Cultures in 2016. It provides us with resources to serve refugee youth in Vermont.
State of Vermont Department of Health: This grant was awarded to the Association of Africans Living in Vermont and Connecting Cultures in 2016. It provides us with resources to serve refugee survivors of sexual assault in Vermont.
Serena Foundation: Connecting Cultures has been fortunate to receive many yearly donations through the generosity and recommendation of the Serena Foundation Fund, a donor-advised fund.
