Two Somali women's organizations now open, offering nearly identical services


On the second floor of an old brick building in downtown Willmar, the Somali Women's Connection Center is open for business.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., five days a week, Muslim women can go there to exercise in private, get help from a group of volunteers in finding a job or just work on improving their English.

Downstairs, in the same building, they can do the same thing during the same times at the similarly titled Somali Women Organization.
