Research-based Approach
Our goal is to pro-actively address family issues through research, individual and family outreach, consultation, education and skill development. We want to maximize the use of the Internet and develop interactive web-based courses in the fields of pre-marital counseling, domestic violence prevention, anger management, and parenting.

FATE

The objective of FATE is to aid Muslim children currently in the foster care system. We advocate, counsel, train, and educate Muslim families in the DFW Metroplex. Our quest is to help them come forward and revive the beautiful Sunnah (Prophetic tradition) of Kafala (fostering).

We create and manage a platform where Muslim families can connect with subject matter experts. In this way, we aim to have their questions answered about the many different aspects of Kafala – legal, spiritual, psychological, etc.

We lay the groundwork to provide peace of mind to Muslim families who are providing foster care services to the community. We are diligently working to increase the number of licensed Muslim foster families by helping to create the personal connections that will provide a dependable support network.
