Our Core Programs

Education/Health

The after school program works with k-12 students and parents to foster a relationship between the schools, school district, and parents alike. This method allows us to find the root cause of drop outs, lack of motivation and cultural misunderstandings.  The health program focuses on the health of Somali immigrants and how they can better utilize their resources. The top health issues for Somali immigrants are diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. 

Small Business Empowerment

 

The small business program works with many Somali owned business to provide education on ways they can improve their business plans. The Somali Community has been flourishing for the last two decades and has opened multiple small businesses. However, many have missed out on expanding their business or utilizing e-commerce services. SRO united over a number of Somali owned business with the goal of providing finical education and seminars that could improve their business model. In addition we work with financial advisors to help educate the Somali community. 

Women Empowerment Program

 

The women empowerment program aims to address the cultural needs of the Somali women in regards to health, education, and guidance. This program is important because immigrant women are a vital part of our community growth.
