What We Do

We are a non-profit organization for physically and developmentally disabled individuals.

In memory of Moeen Alam, an individual that suffered from such disabilities and lost his life at only the age of 18 in a house fire. His mother, Qaisar Alam was determined to honour Moeen’s legacy by introducing a centre that would offer individuals like Moeen the opportunity to learn and interact with others facing similar challenges.

Through the assistance of friends, family, volunteers and board members, Moeen Centre became a well-established organization that …

My daughter has been behaving very mature...

lately. As soon as I come back home from work, she comes out of her room and says "hello" and even asks me how my day was... In the morning, she says "good morning" and asks me if I had a good sleep. I used to ask her those questions daily and I tell her that I love her ... and now she is saying it back to me! I love the child that my daughter is becoming and she's so pleasant. She has not destroyed anything lately; I must say she is very pleasant, even more so than usual. Thank you" -A parent

It was such a pleasure meeting the person who ...

spends so much time with my daughter teaching her life skills and other things that will allow her to lead a normal life" -An appreciative mother

The Moeen Centre and its staff looked after my...

autistic child who is known to run away from home. With commitment from its staff and the daily routine established for my son, I was able to spare some time and find a job that now benefits my whole family. Thank you to all the staff at the Moeen Centre." -Appreciative mother

Our family was finding it extremely difficult to...

find a placement for our special child. Most of the institutions refused to take our son due to lack of space and his special condition that required constant supervision. We were very glad when the Moeen Centre and the staff offered their services to look after our child during the day. As a result, my wife was able to help in running our small business, we have less stress and it has made a significant difference in our lives to know that Moeen Centre is around to assist families such as ours.” –Parents of a Special Child

My daughter's behaviour has improved...

My daughter's behaviour has improved from attending Moeen Centre. She is learning essential life skills which she practices at home like rinsing her dishes. She enjoys the subjects she learns at the centre like Arts and Crafts and Physical education. She participates in community activities like handing out flyers in the neighbourhood. Overall, my daughter is continuing to develop her essential life skills at Moeen Centre and learning a lot. - A Proud Parent 

My son has little interest in participating....

My son has little interest in participating in any new activities and had no interest in trying out several of them. Since I enrolled my son at the Moeen Centre, he has greatly benefited from learning new skills and taking on challenging tasks. The staff has helped my son acquire new abilities and has been understanding, encouraging, and helpful. Before, my son didn't take any interest in solving puzzles, now he's officially reached 100 pieces! Having previously been uninterested in exploring new physical interests, he started using the treadmill every morning. In addition, Moeen Centre helps my son advance in his favourite hobbies while encouraging him to keep up with them. All things considered, the centre is fantastic, with wonderful staff that has assisted my son and given him resources to help him continue his progress.

- A Proud mother 

Our daughter has attended Moeen Centre....

Our daughter has attended Moeen Centre since she aged out of the public school system.  She has very little verbal communication which leads to her becoming very frustrated and acting out.  The staff at Moeen Centre is able to communicate with her at a level that she can understand.   Since she has been attending Moeen Centre, her listening and comprehension skills have improved and she has started to respond appropriately to requests for self-care and household tasks, like clearing the dinner table and putting her laundry in the washing machine.  Our daughter may never be fully independent, but every skill that Moeen gives her improves her life and our family’s life.

- Thank you Mrs. Alam

Truly all your efforts may not [all] be mentioned,...

but greatly appreciated. I have seen education wise the difference you have made in my daughter's life" -Note from a mother

I commend your organization's efforts to provide...

a range of programs and services to promote the empowerment of persons of physical and developmental challenges and to support the promotion and development of full participation and equality of persons with disabilities in our communities. I applaud the continuing efforts of your members and many volunteers and I extend my best wishes for success in your future endeavours and in the challenges and opportunities which lie ahead." -Derek Lee, MP (Scarborough-Rough River)

My daughter has been attending the Moeen Centre ...

since the beginning of the school year. She has adjusted well and I am pleased with the progress reports that describe the daily with activities that have taken place. I would like to see more activities like learning to take public transportation. This will help her to get acquainted with her surroundings. I would also like to see more students at the school which will allow her to be more social. Interacting with others will build her vocabulary and self-esteem. I learned about Moeen Centre from my local newspaper and not the government agency where I get my subsidy from. A lot more exposure is needed by government departments who supply funding for special needs program.” – Email from a mother

My son is 18 years old and is developmentally ...

delayed. He joined the Moeen Centre during March Break and the Summer Holidays. He liked the time he spent there and was very happy. It was very helpful for me when he attended the day program at the Moeen Centre as it freed up my time to carry on other family responsibilities. The Moeen Centre staff went out of their way and also offered to transport my son to the Centre. Thank you.” –Grateful father

Our son had no interest in doing anything....

Our son had no interest in doing anything no matter how much we tried at home to get him interested in various activities. 

We even purchased a tablet, thinking that may interest him but all he wanted to do was eat and sit and rock himself back and forth.
We got the opportunity to enroll him at the Moeen Centre, and he's a changed boy.
He's doing puzzles on his tablet and ABC'S.
Day by day I see improvements in his daily activities/behaviors.
He wants to do things for himself, without help.
He's becoming more and more independent.
I find he wants to try to do things by himself. So I let him but I say to him if you need help, ask me, and if he does he will say, 'Help'.
We were fortunate to get a place for our son at the Moeen Centre.
In the mornings he's up early and ready to go. 
So thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Moeen Centre that's teaching our son new skills/activities and he's happier. We appreciate it, and we're grateful.
Proud Parents. Mrs. Alam.

As a parent, I noticed there are big changes....

As a parent, I noticed there are big changes in my son since he joined the Moeen Centre. He learns a lot, he knows how to wait even a little bit longer if you explain something to him. He understands more than before. He can go by himself to the public washroom as long as I'm waiting outside and asking him “Are you OK?” there. Since he has a wheeltrans, he learns more patience to wait until he gets home. It's a big help for him to become a little bit independent. When I give him some instructions he can manage it. He learned math, reading, and writing. He has the street sense to walk. He is getting better in his life skills activities. Thank you so much for all the support of Moeen Centre and the Staff.
