Nonprofit or community organization

Somali Family Service of San Diego was established in 2000 as a non-profit, community-based social service organization. Since its inception, the organization has provided culturally and linguistically appropriate programs and services to members of the San Diego Somali and other East African communities, easing their transition and ensuring successful functioning in their new home. In San Diego, there is a serious lack of support services for Somali and other East African immigrants and refugees. SFS fills this gap in the community, since most organizations serving East African immigrants and refugees are not staffed by or dedicated specifically to the population.
