Project SOAR’s Spotlight On: the Karen Organization of San Diego

KOSD is pleased to announce our selection as the featured Spotlight story for Project SOAR!

Project SOAR is an initiative of the International Rescue Committee, in partnership with the Nationalities Service Center. With support from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), Project SOAR provides organizations in the United States that serve refugees with the tools they need to develop and deliver high-quality services” (, para. 1).

From our humble beginnings in 2009, the Karen Organization of San Diego has grown exponentially in the past few years. However, this growth parallels the added pressure of providing services to increasing numbers of clients. To meet these heightened demands, Project SOAR’s resources have given KOSD additional tools for the future. With the resources provided by Project SOAR, we hope to continue our work in the community more efficiently and effectively for years to come!
