Who we are: Since our organization’s launch in 2010, Isuroon has provided the Somali and East African immigrant women and their families and recent refugee communities with services designed to empower individuals and families and to provide them with the information and resources they need in order to thrive. The majority of our community is under 200% of the federal poverty guidelines, with many being single mother-led families and most consisting of 6 or more members. While our clients are skilled and capable individuals, the bureaucratic systems in place create many barriers for individuals, especially immigrants and refugees. Our work here at Isuroon is centered around supporting our clients to navigate these systems and overcome any barriers they may be facing.  

What we do: With programs in education, mental and behavioral health, and youth engagement along with the direct services and case management we provide, Isuroon works to support our clients in all aspects of their lives. Since COVID-19, our team at Isuroon has been working rapidly to keep up with the needs of our communities.  In this time of financial insecurity, Isuroon has been able to provide our communities with direct services such as food from our halal food shelf. Thanks to your generous donation dollars, we are able to afford the staff, supplies, and services that help us to support our clients. Here at Isuroon we made the promise and commitment that our doors are always open to our community and while COVID-19 has affected many aspects of our lives, our promise remains intact.  

With your donation, we will be able to: 

  1. Support our culturally specific halal food shelves  
  2. Help us renovate our building and help it to remain a safe space for the community 
  3. Support various emergency needs such as purchasing necessities for our families
  4. Hire more Somali speaking staff and mental health providers 
  5. Help us support East African women who want to be doulas
  6. Ensure we don’t experience any cash flow challenges
