Assessing the Need
Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings be upon him has shown us the example of one in need by pointing us in the direction of examining his or her condition. In our everyday condition, we become aware of others who lack food, housing and emotional comfort for a variety of reasons. When there are no family members to turn to for help, there is a need for the community to respond.

United Muslim Movement Against Homelessness (U.M.M.A.H.)/ Helping Hands,
has served the needs of the homeless and hungry for many years. It is now launching an effort that includes the development of the Muslim Women’s Help Network. Its focus is to outreach within the Muslim community to respond to the needs of sisters and children whose homeless (displaced) experience, or the threat thereof, deserves critical attention, support and relief.

Help For The Homeless & The Needy

Insha’Allah, the network plans to develop efforts and actions that will build bridges of understanding and increased delivery of services that support wholesome family and community life.
