HISTORY
In 2014, two compassionate women from different parts of the world came together to inspire positive actions and peaceful resolutions. Seeds of mutual respect, compassion, and love grew out of multicultural luncheons and ultimately blossomed into BPB.

BPB FILLS INTEGRATION VOID - IMPLEMENTS PHASE II
BPB picks up the resettlement process where the U.S. refugee resettlement agencies leave off. The first phase of resettlement is funded under the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. BPB partners with resettlement agencies and other social service organizations to bridge the integration gap.

PROGRAMS
Mentoring/Sponsoring Refugee Families
BPB assists in family resettlement by donating financial and non-cash assistance, establishing a community safety net, recurring monthly visits, assisting in the citizenship process, and building trust, hope, security, and empowerment.

Cultural Educational Events
BPB sponsors speaking events in local venues to foster awareness of the resettlement process as well as to educate audiences regarding refugee stories.

Pick-up and Delivery of Non-Cash donations
BPB brokers donations of food, furniture, clothing, and other household items to families during resettlement.
