Support for Somali refugee families in Portland, OR

My Voice Somali Organization (MVSO) is a non-profit organization devoted the empowerment of refugees and immigrants in Portland, Oregon and its vicinity.  We seek to educate them on how to achieve a prosperous life in their new-found communities, while preserving their culture and identity; how to become self-sufficient, as well as provide resources that meet their changing needs. We aim to offer support services, provide motivation, counseling (with their cultural needs in mind), general health education, substance abuse prevention, and interpreting services (as a basis for communication in an effort to start bridging the gap between  refugee newcomers and social services for refugees and immigrant youth). Through these efforts we hope to become a driving advocate for the special needs of this growing population.

4 Trout Fishing In The Library

The most enthusiastic students you’ll ever meet can be found 

trout fishing in The Library for prizes. 

So much authority was given to me to be myself that 

…the deeds were done and done again as my life is done in watermelon sugar 

and  because I wanted to give them something back, 

I asked the Poet (his name is James Yeary) to read to you from The Abortion.
