Muslim Social Services
We are emerging from a very difficult time and things are still not very easy with growing inflation and rising costs. In these uncertain times, our community members experience a lot of stress and strain and often need help. That is where MSS comes in. With your support, we have been able to support our community in the last two years in significant ways. Here are a few stories that help in affirming what we do

- Neighbours helping Neighbours,

- Family Art Express,
- Healing through Art, and
- Summer camp for kids
have helped (more than 300 people).
Our counseling both individual and group counseling reached more than 150 people proud to offer our services free of cost, or on a sliding scale. We never deny help to anyone.
In these difficult times, our Ramadan food program served 250 families and we served meals to more than 800 people during Ramadan Iftars. We held several community gatherings that brought people together to share a meal and get to know their neighbors of this wouldn’t have been possible without your help. We are grateful for every dollar you have given us, and every hour of support you have offered us as a volunteer.
