The Islamic Society of Boston is committed to welcoming and supporting all members of our community equally. We believe a better society for persons with disabilities is a better society for all. To improve our services to those with disabilities, ISB is supporting and partnering with MUHSEN, Muslims Understanding and Helping Special Education Needs (https://muhsen.org) in their efforts to help families with Special Needs. MUHSEN provides a range of programs and services across North America to improve the experience within mosques, and engender positive communities for those with disabilities. MUHSEN also certifies Masajid which work towards accommodating special needs community members.
MUHSEN is also seeking compassionate volunteers to provide respite for families in their community. Male and Female volunteers needed nationwide!
Respite care is providing temporary rest from caregiver duties. Caregivers of individuals with special needs often experience burnout. Caregivers frequently miss family and community functions as a result of not having anyone to care for their loved one with special needs. MUHSIN has prepared a short training module for anyone in this situation.
