Become a Community Partner


Noor Family Services is a fiscally responsible, well-managed, non-profit organization whose operations are overseen by a 5-member team of board of directors. 


NFS is grateful and appreciative of the many local donors, but our community partners serve a unique role in the overall efficiency of our program operations and we could not accomplish what we do without their important role, investments, and contributions. 

Our community partners include individuals, faith-based communities, social service agencies, advocates, first-responders, and other organizations that are interested in addressing the growing pandemic of domestic violence in immigrant communities and have a desire to work with NFS to eradicate this problem. 


Community partners do their part by providing generous financial and in-kind support to our operations. 


If you’re interested in becoming a community partner with NFS, please call 770-814-4492.   We’ll be happy to identify our needs and determine how your support can have the greatest impact.

 




How Faith-Based Communities Can Help NFS 
The vision of Noor Family Service began in a local social gathering, and faith-based communities have been an integral part of our operations since we opened our doors. We are particularly proud that immigrant and faith-based communities have joined together to ensure that we have the physical, spiritual, moral, and financial support to allow us to fulfill our culturally-sensitive mission.


Domestic violence crosses all faiths, so we partner with religious/spiritual communities from various faith backgrounds all over the metro-Atlanta area to provide culturally-sensitive services to domestic violence victims and survivors to their worshippers.  


NEED CRISIS HELP?
Have you learned (or do you suspect) that a woman in your congregation is in an unsafe relationship? Noor Family Services can help and provide guidance.  Just call us 770-814-4492.
 
FAITH-BASED LEADERSHIP TRAINING 
Few Imams, clergy, and lay leaders have training for the religious challenges related to culturally-impacted domestic violence. Do you know the right steps to take when you suspect abuse? What should you do when a community member comes to you for help? (Couples’ counseling is rarely the right answer.) Once a year, we host training to build understanding of how domestic violence is affecting your congregation and what you can do about it from a religious perspective.


OUTREACH EFFORTS.


Our outreach efforts allows religious leaders to receive training to properly address domestic violence in their communities and teaches skills to engage with one another and brainstorm viable solutions to deal with the trauma of family violence and the cultural nuances that affect its victims. Contact Noor Family Services and be a part of the solution.


If you would like to sign up for Faith-Based Leadership Training, send an email to info@noorfamilyservices.org


If your faith-based community is currently not a member, but would like to join in this partnership, please call 770-814-4492  to learn how you can participate.
