Mission Statement

Burma Refugee Family Network (BRFN) is a community-based nonprofit organization established to assist refugees of all ethnic groups from Burma resettling in the wider San Francisco Bay Area. BRFN provides and advocates for culturally and linguistically appropriate social support services, such as language training, social welfare, education, physical and mental healthcare, employment, housing, and cultural bridging and preservation. BRFN works in collaboration and partnership with other community organizations in order for the refugees from Burma to achieve self-sufficiency and civic engagement in the community.

Description

Founded in 2008 by refugees and immigrants from Burma, BRFN is a community-based organization that was formed to provide a critical bridge between the newly arrived refugees from Burma and local resources, organizations, and social services. The majority of BRFN’s Board is comprised of ethnically diverse refugee community members from Burma with backgrounds in refugee case management, medical interpretation, child psychology, nonprofit management, advocacy, and community understanding and knowledge.
