When basic needs are met, we empower families to reach their full potential.
All families need shelter, utilities and food in order to thrive. When these basic needs are in jeopardy, so is our community! We coordinate and distribute the resources of community-based partners and donated zakat funds. Over the past 15 years, thousands of lives have been impacted by this work.
