About Us

What We Do


The SSCCSD provides support for those who have immigrated from war torn South Sudan. Most of it's staff is unpaid volunteers who donate their time to support refugee communities. Join us or donate to support our job training, emotional support and acculturation, and other urgent services. See all programs

Our History


 There are approximately 6,000 Southern Sudanese refugees in San Diego. They have been forced to leave their country because of ongoing religious, ethnic and political persecution. All of them spend a great deal of time in the refugee camps before being admitted into the United States of America. 

Our Mission


The SSCCSD is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 1995 with the mission to assist all Sudanese refugees in their resettlement through education, social, economic, and cultural support. We guide them towards self-sufficiency and full integration into American society while respecting their dignity as new Americans.
