A new support center aims to assist the large Burmese population in Buffalo. The Burmese Community Support Center (BCSC) is located on Buffalo’s Westside and run by the Burmese community.

The non-profit organization was created to provide support to the 8,000 Burmese people living in Buffalo. Client Services Coordinator Chan Thu says the Burmese Community Support Center isn’t a replacement for existing refugee service organizations.
