Would you recommend Muslim Family Services?

by Kaighla D. (March 3, 2014)
I was able to benefit from the counseling provided by Muslim Family Services in 2011. It really helped me during a time in my life I desperately needed counseling but could never have afforded it. The fact that the counselors are professionals trained in helping Muslims fix their personal and marital problems is such a blessing in the community. I was always treated with respect and dignity and my counselor even kept contact with me when I left the country, just to be sure I was ok.
