In 2007, a group of intellectuals and residents of Creston Point Apartments organized a meeting to discuss their needs. Among the topics discussed were; lack of representation, translation, civic integration, cultural sensitivity, crime prevention, after school programs and many other social issues. The group decided to form an organization that would advocate for the concerns of the Somali and Refugee residents of Creston Point Apartments. Thus, Somali Youth & Family Club was formed.
