refugees or immigrants within our community.
Somali Community Development of Utah (SCDU)
strives to create an environment conducive to refugees acquiring the skills necessary to adapt to life in Utah. We provide
assistance with and access to services that promote independence, education and employment. This includes language
instruction, social, legal and housing services. We provide cultural orientation for refugees, educating them about U.S.
laws and customs, and provide parental assistance with early child education techniques to better prepare their children
for their public school years. Finally, we assist young people in the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse, sexually transmitted
diseases and gang activity.
