Providing Support for Communities Across the United States
Our projects have focused on:
- providing vaccination for COVID-19 through support for appointments and event creation
- Assisting fishermen with applications for compensations post BP Oil Spill
- Helping families through Katrina and Rita Relief and Recovery Program assisted by securing $16.5 million in aid, placing 850 in homes, and referring 265 to jobs
In the event of disasters, BPSOS is a first responder, bringing immediate relief and recovery services to communities through direct assistance and short-term case management. We have also implemented long-term case management and community redevelopment initiatives, where individuals, families, and communities affected by natural or human-made disasters recover and rebuild their lives.
With 43 years of experience working with immigrant and refugee populations in times of crisis, BPSOS has become a leading authority in long-term recovery case management for high needs populations. BPSOS has assisted thousands of families affected by COVID-19, Oil Spill, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Ike, Hurricane Rita, and Hurricane Katrina.
Hundreds of BPSOS’ client families were African-Americans and other non-Vietnamese.
