Parents/caregivers took a break to socialize and learn about resources while all our special-needs guests received personalized one-on-one attention with MCC youth. The panelists are Sr. Rachida Ahmad and Br. Abdullah Mojaddedi.

Alhamdulillah, since 2017, the MCC East Bay is proud to be the first masjid on the West Coast to be certified as special-needs friendly. In 2019, MCC East Bay became the first gold-certified masjid in California. We are working hard now to become the first platinum-certified masjid on the West Coast.
