Somali Family Safety Task Force



The Somali Family Safety Task Force is a nonprofit community-based organization (CBO) located in the NewHolly neighborhood in Seattle, WA that serves refugee and immigrant women and their families. Not only are we community-based but we are also community-driven. Our founders as well as the majority of our staff and volunteers are Somali and/or East African. Our programs are created with input from our community and are often at their request. Programs range from computer literacy training to combating and preventing gender-based violence. We pride ourselves in being an organization by-and-for our community.

SFSTF through its Seniors Program provides volunteer-run workshops and services to our seniors. Our classes are designed to enhance their community engagement and their overall health and wellness, as well as increasing proficiency levels in English. Also, with the help of volunteers, we provide transportation, home repairs, cleaning services, food deliveries, and better access to service providers. During the Pandemic, our activities are taking place virtually.
