Mission Statement

We are a national Vietnamese-American community-based organization with the mission to "empower, organize, and equip Vietnamese individuals and communities in their pursuit of liberty and dignity."


Since 1980, one in 10 Vietnamese Americans has received assistance from BPSOS while still in Vietnam, on the high seas, in a refugee camp, or after arriving in the United States.

Through our 18 office locations in the U.S. and four office locations in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, we provide a web of services to support individuals, families, and communities.

Would you recommend Boat People SOS, Inc.?

by Tommy H. from Centreville, VA (March 16, 2012)
Great organization. The staff is friendly, helpful, and focused on delivering change in the community. If you like working with young children and want to make tangible contributions, then this would be the place to seek out these opportunities. It was a pleasant experience volunteering here.

The truth is that I have never heard of this organization (BPSOS, Inc.) before until now. Just by reading the mission statement and the brief description of assistance that you do, it touches my heart deeply what you do for humanitarian sake. Anything that we can do as human, to help liberating individuals and safe lives and restoring dignity to those who are in need, has always been a challenge and a great interest of mine to pursue. I would love to get involved and be a part of a team, doing community works which involves humanitarian assistance for people from all different walks of life. To me personally, I'd say that giving ourselves in helping others is indeed a rewarding challenge, a beautiful thing to do and the greatest gift ever that we can give to one another, more than anything else in the world.
