Welcome to the Karen Organization of San Diego's
KOSD receives the National Association of Social Work's 2014 Award for Organization of the Year for community organizing! Vital community and youth leaders attended NASW's Self Care Celebration and Award Ceremony, pictured above.
The Karen Organization of San Diego was established in 2009 to meet the needs of Karen and other ethnic minority groups from Burma who reside in San Diego. Karen Organization of San Diego is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our primary purpose is to provide social services, educational enhancement, opportunities for cultural preservation and community building for the Karen and other ethnic minority groups from Burma who reside in San Diego to improve their quality of life.
We hope this website can provide you with helpful information about the Karen and other ethnic minority groups from Burma who are your new community members. Also, on this site we will share our story and resources for the Karen and other refugees from Burma living in San Diego and in other cities in the U.S.
