Our Member: A group of Somalis who resettled in the US in 1990’s came together in the year 1995 and started helping newly arrived refugees from Africa in culturally and language 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 non profit organization under IRS code 501©3 on September 18, 1996. Community members, government and non government agencies supported in the process of incorporation. On August 4, 1997, the name of the organization was changed to Somali Community Services of Seattle.
