A chaplain is a spiritual professional with unique skill sets, connected to spiritual and emotional care. They often work in hospitals, prisons, and universities. Lately, more and more Muslim communities are expanding their care team to include chaplains as well.
Muslim chaplains fill a variety of roles, including: supporting families during times of grief, loss and end of life, advocating for religious freedom and rights, advising institutions on religious and cultural accommodations, providing ethics guidance, representing Islam at the institutional level, and providing instruction in Islamic sciences.
Southeast Islamic Community Center offers chaplain services voluntarily to the community. Send an email to the chaplain you want to meet with to schedule an appointment. Contact us for more information.
