The Episcopal Refugee Network of San Diego is a non-profit organization that started serving refugees in San Diego County, from many countries of origin, to help families during their years of adjustment to American life.
Most of our early clients were from Sudan, but now we also serve many Karen and Karinni refugees from Myanmar (Burma), and Bhutanese and Iraqi refugees.
