Masjid Al-Islam provides an array of social services that helps its customers become self-reliant with opportunities and experiences that assist with behavioural change and those that promote healthy lifestyles. We help individuals and families become productive citizens in the communities in which they live. Our services are open to the most vulnerable, the disenfranchised, the homeless, low income persons, the underemployed, and those greatest in need. We provide program services that educate and embrace the whole human being. We do not discriminate based on a person’s race, ethnicity, creed, or physical limitations.
