Organization Overview:

Sahaba Initiative is a community organization that nurtures healthy families in the Inland Empire by collaborating for social change, promoting healing, and operating a family service center that provides direct services.

Request Overview:

Sahaba Initiative’s work is rooted in wellness of families in the Inland Empire region of California, one of the most impoverished regions in the nation and where 23 percent of young children are reported to live in poverty. Sahaba Initiative works to provide families with the adequate tools to reach self sufficiency, maintain well-being and flourish in our challenging times. The organization specializes in providing effective zakat case management, basic needs, support groups and access to healthy food options through their food pantry. In 2018, Sahaba Initiative moved from a tiny store front in Downtown San Bernardino to a 4000-square-foot facility and capacity is reaching its limit. The organization seeks operational support to develop the structural components which will allow us to grow and continue filling a huge social services gap in the region.
