Rajada Cafimaad (pronounced RA-ja-da aaf-MAAD) translates to “healthy hope” and supports Somali students and families in the community. Youth gain insight and wisdom in moving past barriers at school and in the community by learning how to manage healthy relationships, healthy expression of emotions, and life stressors. Students and their families have access to culturally competent services with a licensed Somali-American mental health professional with experience balancing more than one cultures while striving for success in the community of Saint Paul.
Parents and guardians participate at least once a month in our Rajada Cafimaad program will explore new ways to enhance family bonds and improve family communications. Mental health services available through Rajada Cafimaad are billed to each child’s health insurance for individual and family therapy sessions. We work with each family to determine insurance coverage and also offer a sliding fee scale.
Rajada Cafimaad is available to Somali students and their families at the following school:
