- Youth programs 2021
As Falis Community Organization, we started working with the youth back in 2018 we have youth focus group which we meet every second Friday of the month and that is where they head the conversation and decide what to pick and discuss and we facilitate and support technically.
Falis Community has five program managers from five different communities, those group of managers manage and facilitate five different programs, help youth leadership and participations and there are youth volunteers within each community by creating space on whatsAp group where you can post all the questions you may have from homework help to referral resources, they also help youth stay in school and learn the system of the school by giving them training. The program gets bigger we proud to say we have over 500 members on our youth group.

- Walk with Senior/ disabled
This program is started June 2019 and still going on strong, it has been stablished to help seniors feel included, our seniors don’t go outside homes and before we started the program most of them did not know where centers for senior located. This program helps our seniors and disabled individuals to choose their own time and date for transporting go and back to cover their needs whether it is grocery, shopping or medical appointment and so on, thanks for King County for giving us retired Van that makes it easy to do our senior services, it also makes easy holding meetings with our youth to have space for storytelling.
Since the Covid-19 erupted and spread in the nationwide, we added the program of delivering cultural relevant food to the senior/disabled doors once in every month to minimize or stop spreading the virus and following the guidelines of CDC such as keeping social distancing, wearing facemask, washing hands and using hand sanitizer. The program makes appointments for Covid-19 testing and vaccinating it also helps transportation and interpreter if needed
