BRFN advocates for improved access to childcare, physical and mental health care, language access, and social services for the refugees from Burma. We work collaboratively with other community based organizations and government agencies to highlight and address the refugee community needs. We are members of the East Bay Refugee Forum and the San Francisco Family Support Network. We continue to conduct focus groups and community meetings, as well as occasional needs assessment and formal and informal surveys to explore the strengths and challenges that our client communities have, and publish these reports for public awareness and advocacy. We also use these findings for our own internal program development, evaluation and improvements.
