FAMILY AND COMMUNITY RELIEF
Crisis can happen to anyone, and at any time. Through a host of programs, we provide support to children and families facing life challenges. By investing in children’s communities and supporting families, our goal is to create a better environment for the child.
IRAN COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM
FAMILIES IN CRISIS PROGRAM
We receive family needs cases thru local social services agencies or referral by individuals. Following the initial screening, we assess the family needs and in addition to support provided by our volunteers, connect them to local employment resources, legal assistance, financial help and others as needed until the family can become self-sustaining. In Iran we support several families with their monthly living expenses due a variety of factors including parental disability and lack of sufficient income..
SUPPORT OF REFUGEES
FOOD DISTRIBUTION PROGRAMS
Several times throughout the year, our dedicated Iran volunteers procure, package and distribute food staples to communities and families in dire need of support, and often in far reaching areas in Iran. The food packages make the difference between a child going to bed hungry or having a much-needed meal.
HOLIDAY FOOD AND GIFT PACKAGES
Over the years, distributing food and gifts during the Nowruz holiday, has become a highlight of our programs. Our Iran team works tirelessly to ensure children receive new clothes, shoes, and gifts as well as the families receiving month long food in celebration of Nowruz.
through ongoing initiatives and our network of volunteers, professionals in a range of fields and our donors, we help families who come from Iran seeking medical help or other, to connect to the needed resources and settle within the community. These include legal assistance, medical help, employment opportunities, housing, schooling, and mentoring for the children.

To address the food insecurity in our communities, our volunteer teams provide weekly breakfast food for two women's shelter in Montgomery county, Maryland. Many times, we have been requested to provide and serve lunch or dinner to the center's residents which our dedicated volunteers have led. Our program is in the process of expanding to family centers in Virginia.
