We are a SeeYourImpact partner helping women escape from family violence
One in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. These women face extreme real life concerns for their safety and the safety of their children. Muslim women in particular face additional barriers that prevent them from seeking help. Many do not even know that there are agencies that can help them. Many do not speak English, have no transportation, have no access to family finances and are totally dependent on their husbands and their extended families. They find themselves and their children helpless and stuck in the abusive situation. TMWF is determined to change that!
Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation (TMWF) takes a comprehensive strategy to addressing family violence. It includes providing direct intervention services and extensive community education. TMWF saves lives through the “Peaceful Oasis” emergency shelter, a 24 – hour crisis hotline and transitional housing.
We need your donations and support to cover the $30,000/month operating cost of the Peaceful Oasis Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence! Please help by donating $250 for one week of groceries for one family or $100 for bus passes to work for one client for one month.
