MCC Outreach Program
Nuha Al Makhzumi, M.A. Coordinator
MCC outreach program provides direct services to refugees, assist clients and provides educational programs.
This education program focuses on how to bridge the gap between two cultures. Assist in obtaining medical care at Al-Shifa clinic or public hospital. Help in applying for Medicaid and getting food stamps as needed. Assist refugees and immigrants in hospitals having difficulties due to cultural and language problems. The program focuses on several topics including Empathy, Feelings & Needs, Behavior, Discipline & Values, Safety, Stress & Anger. The coordinator and the volunteers speak many languages.
Several years after the refugees arrived and the children grew up, we started to see the gap between parents and children appear and cause problems, This led us to consider starting an awareness program for parents in 2016 .As a result of this program, we received calls from various institutions like Child Protective Services and Catholic Charities.
