February 9, 2009: Tet in the Lone Star state can be a big event when you gather clients, community partners, funders, BPSOS advisory board members, representatives of elected officials, and local Vietnamese media under the same roof!

That’s exactly what BPSOS-Houston did at an open house on January 30. Plates of Vietnamese delicacies were savored, and along the way, three goals were accomplished. First, people at all levels of involvement in BPSOS got to know each other better. Second, Tet, with all its traditions and cultural importance, was honored. And third, people had a chance to discuss some of the goals of the Houston office in the New Year, including fighting the trafficking of Vietnamese and extending better health and legal services to under-served Vietnamese Americans!
