WHO WE ARE
Boat People SOS (BPSOS) - Virginia is a community-driven, non-profit services provider in northern Virginia. BPSOS VA is committed to serving the vulnerable and underserved communities in the local area.
Our purpose is to empower, organize, and equip immigrant communities in their pursuit of liberty and dignity. To achieve that purpose, our Virginia branch provides services, education and information to our local community which is often marginalized due to the language and cultural barriers. We also help community members recognize and apply for many public benefits that they may not be aware of.
As a result, our limited English proficient members had an easier time integrating into American society and achieve their dreams. Our services range from affordable health coverage, chronic diseases management, COVID-19 vaccination to domestic violence and immigration process.
To make an appointment with our local office, please call (703) 538-2190.
