AMSS Halal Meals on Wheels
This comprehensive Social Outreach and Support model program is conducted by teams of AMSS multi-cultural Health and Long -Term Care Outreach Ambassadors. Since COVID-19, AMSS has formed Rapid Response Ambassadors Teams to meet the multitude of emergency requests for food, shelter, medical and financial support, and the increased isolation of our vulnerable diverse members.
AMSS Ambassadors are reaching out to 200 isolated, diverse older persons through friendly phone calls, home visits, and the delivery of bi-weekly hot halal meals, non- perishable food, and fresh produce. In addition, AMSS distributes gift cards and food baskets during the Holy month of Ramadan and special holiday events. Our Ambassadors regularly assess their client’s needs and connect them with county and community resources.
All the above resources are made possible due to AMSS's valuable partnerships with public and private county and community agencies.
Special thanks to Montgomery County Food Council, the Islamic Center of Maryland (ICM), and the generous donations of community members. We are working with Regency Taxi to develop innovative affordable transportation options to further reduce the isolation of under-served communities.
