Our Core Focus-
Small Businesses & Entrepeneurs
Soma provides a robust offering of services for our community’s aspiring and new entrepreneurs. We maintain a network of referral sources that can be helpful for businesses at all stages.
Soma partnered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2021 to bring volunteer income tax assistance, called the VITA program, to St. Joseph County and the surrounding areas.
We educate soon-to-be or recently graduated High School students in crucial life skills including budgeting and investing, building resumes and mock interviews, college preparation, and entrepreneurship.
Resources & Sponsors
The State of Indiana has incredible resources available that we connect you to such as the Indiana Small Business Development Center, INBiz, and local economic resources.
