Financial Assistance & Peer Support

About Rahma

  Since 2018, CIDI has helped numerous women with emergency financial aid and peer support when other local resources in Rochester 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.


  We encourage you to also make an appointment to meet with CIDI staff to discuss your needs and finalize your application. You can schedule an appointment on our Services page.
