Women Transitional Home Project

Women Transitional Home Project

MCF community members and ICNA Relief are excited to announce the opening of the Women Transitional Home project after Ramadan. 
Unfortunately, there is a rising Muslim women homelessness in the U.S. These women are victim of domestic violence, sudden tragedies and emotional trauma. There is hardly any options for these women to start a new life in the time of sudden crises. We as a community are under religious and moral obligation to help our sisters in need.

 
MCF community is taking the lead in the Sacramento region to start the first women transitional home in partnership with ICNA relief.
 
ICNA has established program in US with 17 transitional homes serving around 500 women per year.

There will be a fundraising event for the program right after Salat-ul-Jumma on May 31st in MCF.

For information regarding the women's Tranistional Home project please CLICK HERE for the  presentation.

Contact Advisory Board: Br. Mohammad Hafeez, Br. Ishfaq Qurashi, Br. Noor Khan, Br. Saif ul Haq, Br. Waseem Peracha or Br. Zeeshan Sarwar for any question.

Become a respite volunteer today!
 
Before you click out of this email, read
what one mother wrote about respite care:
 
"A few years ago I realized that declining an offer of assistance was not only unhelpful to me, but was alsodepriving another of baraka, or the opportunity to help a fellow Muslim in need. I always said 'its ok, I got this', if someone offered to help with my daughter's wheelchair or open the door for us, thinking I had to be "Supermom" and take care of my kids all by myself. But I was wrong-
 
I can't do this all on my own.

People don't offer to help as often as one might think- families like ours might seem intimidating or complicated. But we're not-we're just typical people in atypical circumstances. And those few times someone does offer to help, I gratefully accept-giving us both a moment of kindness to share. I can't stress enough how even little acts of kindness to our family means to us. Bigger, grander gestures of someone volunteering to watch our girls while I go grocery shopping, or go for a physical for myself, arefew and far between unfortunately. But when it does happen, that moment of kindness, that mutually beneficial gift of giving and receiving, that baraka remains for long after in our hearts” 
-Saba Ali Arain
