“Implementing a social services program that serves the Muslim Community has been something I have wanted to be a part of for a very long time. I want to thank the Muslim Center for recognizing the need for social services in our community and putting in the work to get this trail blazing program up and running. I am looking forward to working with the Muslim Center and the Muslim Center Free Clinic to bring these much-needed services to our community members. “
