About the Somali Community Services of Seattle (SCSS):

A group of Somalis who resettled in the US in the 1990's came together in the year 1995 and started helping newly arrived refugees from Africa in a culturally and linguistically competent manner. Their aim was to provide the help and the support that they wish they had when they first came to the US.

​The organization was established under the name, Somali Immigrant Support Society in the year 1995, and was incorporated into a nonprofit organization under IRS code 501©3 on September 18, 1996. Community members, government and nongovernment agencies supported in the process of incorporation. On August 4, 1997, the name of the organization was changed to Somali Community Services of Seattle.

The mission of the SCSS is to work for the success of refugees to undergo a smooth transitional process and attain self-sustainable status in their new home country.

We are going to need lots of great hands on deck to make a powerful statement and impact for this community.

Operational details are coming ... But you can most definitely count on building something GREAT!
