Boat People SOS- Houston (BPSOS) is a non-profit social and legal services provider. Our purpose is to empower, organize, and equip immigrant communities in their pursuit of liberty and dignity.
Our Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Program aims to provide trauma informed and culturally + linguistically appropriate supportive services. This includes crisis intervention, access to mental health and health care providers, and ongoing emotional support to nurture the healing process of survivors of sexual assault. This encompsses trauma informed care, referrals to legal consultations and representations, referrals to short and long term counseling, crisis intervention, safety planning, emotional support, accompaniments, and access to medical care.
In an immigrant population where domestic violence is supressed and difficult to talk about, please help us in fulfilling our mission of providing an avenue of assistance for immigrant surviviors, as they begin their journey of reclaiming their lives.
