The senior program of SOMCSS is for Somali and Oromos elders of age 55 and older. The services include support in passing the citizenship test, weekly meals, and activities. We honor our elders and provide services to ensure their mental and physical health by engaging them in various activities with the community while taking care of their comfort.
Our seniors gather at our center every week for nutrition-rich healthy lunch and activities. The food includes rice, fresh vegetables, meat, and dairy products. We offer ethnic meals to fulfill the dietary needs of our elders to ensure physical and mental well-being.
Most of our seniors cannot read either in Somali, Oromo, or English. Our volunteers individually coach them to pass the citizenship test. They aid in access to community resources to help them with their needs, information understanding, communication help, and English comprehension.
