The MRCSSI provides social support networks for the diverse communities in London and surrounding areas. MRCSSI value the strength in your culture, we will work together to promote culturally integrated family safety services.
Our mission is to establish social support networks for the diverse London Muslim community in dealing with issues of integration, family conflict, domestic violence, and children in conflict with the law. We aim to build the capacity needed to overcome challenges that Muslim families may face at different stages in their lives.
MRCSSI creates a Safe Place for families, couples, women, children and men by offering integrative and inter-cultural family violence prevention and intervention services. The MRCSSI has successfully engaged local Muslim and Arab community leaders as well as social service and justice agencies in working through complex family conflict and family violence issues that arise from stressors associated with immigration including pre-migration trauma as well as cultural differences.
The centre’s main focus is to help ensure that professional support, guidance and advocacy are available to all members of the Muslim and Arabic communities at all times. We want to create a pathway of understanding between the Muslim and Canadian community. In doing so, we create a network of support for both communities.
