The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Somali Community Needs Assessment Project. A Report Prepared for the Somali Resource Center.

Robillos, Mia.

This study was commissioned by the Somali Resource Center to assess the needs of Somalis living in Hennepin County and determine how those needs could be met. The report presents the results of a series of focus group discussions that were conducted with male and female Somalis of various ages, and reports on a survey of organizations that serve the Somali population that was designed to learn about their activities and the services they offer. The results of the focus groups and survey are used to determine how well the needs of the Somali community matched available services. Finally, several published studies on the Somali community in Minnesota are reviewed to compare the needs of Somalis as identified by those studies with those identified in the focus groups.
