The mission of the episcopal refugee network of san diego is to provide assistance to refugees who have been subjected to religious, racial and economic persecution and have been forced from their homeland as international religious/political refugees. The mission is currently extended to include the diversity of refugees arriving in san diego, california and concentrates on sudanese and karen refugees from myanmar. The goal is to assist them in becoming productive citizens of the united states of america.
In 2014 the refugee network increased the number of families served by 40, to a total of 187, due primarily to continued inflow of families from burma. The network added 15 children to the regular weekly tutoring program, along with 6 new tutors. The summer programming was expanded, continuing tutoring through june and july to help the children improve basic language and math skills. The network also took 40 children on field trips to expose them to activies in san diego outside their home neighborhood. The network continues to guide new families through the bureaucracy of immigration, education, employment and welfare issues with translation and transportation services.
