Forum volunteers can help assess health, addiction, employment, housing or social service needs and recommend referrals.  This forum  also serves as a means of removing stigmatization of individuals  returning to the Muslim community after incarceration.

DAILY INSPIRATION: 
POST STANDARD

Being charitable and providing for the needy is one of the five pillars (tenets) of Islam. Many of the world's faiths emphasize the importance of charity. In Islam, there is (zakat ), obligatory charity and (sadaqah ), voluntary charity. The act of volunteering to help those in need is considered an act of worship (ibadah ) . . . . .

- Surah Baqarah 2:153
