“Ansaar” is the honorific title given to those who opened up their hearts and homes to the early Muslims, migrating to the city of Madina almost 1,400 years ago. The word means the supporters.
Today, as many dispossessed refugees, escaping poverty and persecution in their own homelands, arrive in our community, we are striving to live up to the same exemplary tradition of welcoming and servicing the needs of refugees and new arrivals to our beautiful city.
‘Ansaar of Worcester’ was launched in 2017 as a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are devoted in large part to helping refugees and immigrants who have been re-settled in our community. And, we also extend our efforts to helping local residents who are otherwise undeserved.
Ansaar does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, lifestyle, or any other basis, and extends services to anyone struggling with basic necessities. We passionately believe in upholding and respecting the dignity of all humans, and providing them a safe and caring environment.
