You can get involved with KOSD in many different ways.


KOSD believes in the importance of collaboration to provide stronger services to members of our community.
  • San Diego Refugee Communities Coalition (SDRCC)

    The San Diego Refugee Communities Coalition (SDRCC) was established in September 2019 following a year long planning process. SDRCC’s mission statement says “the San Diego Refugee Communities Coalition will lead coordinated action to ensure that individuals and families from refugee communities are healthy, safe, and thriving.”

  • San Diego Refugee Forum:

    The San Diego Refugee Forum is a professional association of organizations that advocates serving all populations fleeing persecution and seeking refuge in San Diego.

  • Crawford Community Connection (CCC) ensures that Crawford Cluster schools and their students are linked to a network of services and community resources to eliminate barriers to student access.
