“Since 1999, Muslim Housing Services (MHS) has served low-income and homeless families in Seattle and throughout King County. We were founded due to the urgent need of culturally and linguistically competent programs and staff, after noticing that many families were not able to access mainstream services. Many of our clients are from refugee and immigrant families, especially those from East Africa and the Middle East. We happily serve anyone who qualifies for our programs regardless of background.
We believe in the Housing First approach – that it is necessary for families to have shelter before they can be expected to make progress in the areas of employment, education, and becoming self-sufficient. We remove the barrier of housing and then work with clients to reach goals in other areas of life.”
MHS accepts many items for setting up a household, for example furniture and food. Its staff requests that you contact them to arrange for the exchange.
