Financial Assistance & Peer Support

About Rahma

  Since 2018, CIDI has helped numerous women with emergency financial needs when other local resources are just not enough. That is why we created a  program dedicated to helping single mothers in Southeast Minnesota.  It's called Rahma, meaning "mercy" in Arabic.

  Any mother can apply for financial assistance through Rahma, regardless of religious or spiritual affiliation.
