MCC Social Services.
Darlene Mann LMSW Project Director
MCC for human services was the first Muslim social service organization in Texas established in 1995 to serve the needs of influx of refugees and immigrants from Bosnia and Somalia in response to the needs of the refugees who had difficulty in settling down in USA. Now MCC provides services to all residents of Dallas-Fort Worth irrespective of religion, country of origin, ethnicity and race.
