Providing Support for Communities Across the United States
Our projects have focused on:
- helping seniors and individuals with disabilities to apply for taxi, Uber, Metro Access, and public transportation discount fares.
- enrolling students in digital classes and workplace skills class training.
- sharing awareness of our services through our radio talk shows to small businesses and the community.
- helping Vietnamese nail salon workers and employers recognize hazards in the workplace and take appropriate preventative measures to ensure safe working conditions.
The ultimate goal of RISE project is to encourage and equip Vietnamese refugees and immigrants across the country to play an active role in the social and economic integration of their families.
Since its establishment, BPSOS's RISE program has helped thousands of Vietnamese refugees and immigrants with many different wrap-round services which include occupational safety program to nail salon workers and employers, financial literacy, job training and placement, tax clinic, small business development, transportation assistance, and many more.
Through our effort in outreaching to community members, our clients are aware of multiple local resources available for them.
