Programs

Our mission is to provide inclusive programming, catering to underserved members of our community. This includes creating opportunities for students, ensuring programming accessibility, and offering support to mothers.

Accessible Programming

ISNA Cares is dedicated to equity, diversity, and inclusion. We want to ensure meaningful participation for all individuals, particularly children with disabilities and special needs. Children with special needs often face exclusion, but at ISNA we strive to foster an atmosphere of belonging.

Our accessible program combines Islamic education and social programming to promote active engagement and involvement of children with special needs within our community.

Student Placements

ISNA Cares is an advocate for gaining practical knowledge and experiences. A practicum opportunity at ISNA Cares will provide students with valuable real-world experience and the chance to apply their theoretical knowledge in practical settings.

Through close supervision and guidance, a practicum with ISNA Cares will allow students the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge needed to succeed in their area of interest. 

Mother’s Support Groups

 

As parenting can be a difficult, isolating, and overwhelming experience, it is essential for mother’s to be supported while navigating the difficulties that come with it. ISNA Cares mother’s support groups offer a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment for all mothers. Through providing emotional support, knowledge sharing, skills and tools for coping with stress, and being a space to build social connections, the mothers support group creates opportunities for meaningful connections with like-minded individuals, fostering a sense of community and friendship.
