Muslim Social Services runs multiple programs throughout the entire year. These programs are available to a variety of age groups each targeting specific goals and aim to be anyone in need. At Muslim Social Services, we believe that when people feel that they belong, they will be motivated to translate their passions into action and contribute meaningfully to the betterment of their communities. We also understand that many of the barriers to belonging come from existing elements in the host community that may not understand how to encourage the integration of newcomers.
MSS aims to foster a healthy, inclusive environment and provides various opportunities of learning and personal growth through its educational, outreach, and support initiatives; it seeks to create an understanding of Islam and Muslims in Canada, build bridges with other faith communities as well as mainstream social service and community organizations. Our projects aim to build stronger and more resilient communities that are well informed of available services and are not afraid to seek help. Overall, we hope that newcomers gain a sense of belonging to the Kitchener Waterloo Community.
