Juan – Florida Center for Survivors of Torture

Juan was a political prisoner in Cuba off and on for many years. The first time he was jailed was right after Fidel Castro came to power. He was a young family man with a new baby. Juan suffered a great deal of psychological and physical torture for his opposition to the communist regime. But Juan was recently allowed to leave Cuba and received political asylum in the U.S. Juan is a client of the Florida Center for Survivors of Torture and has received the support he needs from a compassionate and capable case worker. Juan is benefitting from life-altering medical treatment, a comfortable place to live, and the necessities of life through the help of the Refugee Services program at Gulf Coast.
