Cultural Consultation

The staff of SASSO serves the larger community as a resource for information on Somali culture, participating in panels, workshops, and other events designed to ease misunderstandings. We have given over 80 presentations since 2003. We regularly meet with social service providers, school administrators, law enforcement officials, and property managers to help them understand aspects of Somali culture and interact positively with their Somali clients. We are currently organizing a health care forum to bring together health care providers and members of the Somali community to share information and concerns and discuss ways to better work together.
