“Are you supported or given aid by Allah except by the way that you have treated your most vulnerable?”
Dar Al-Hijrah is located in the heart of one of the largest immigration entry points in the U.S. DAH itself is a community of immigrants and refugees from over 50 countries around the world. And as such, we are more than a faith home to our members, we are their primary resource center for resettlement.
Therefore, over the last two decades, we have developed a full spectrum of services to respond to the needs of our community as they evolve. These include Family Assistance Programs, Self-Sufficiency Classes, and Community Programs & Events.
We work in partnership with many wonderful service providers in the community, and we are proud to collaborate with them to serve our neighbors in need.
Our mission is to make a positive and profound difference in our community. Over 500 people a week access one of our social services programs.
