We also provide assistance to immigrants, refugees, the poor and the victims of domestic violence.

Why help TMWF?
The welfare of women and their children, regardless of their religion or race, is the foundation of a healthy community. When you support TMWF you are helping achieve this goal of supporting women and their children by breaking the cycle of violence within future generations. It is a widely proven fact that the majority of abusers were themselves victims of domestic violence. Muslim women that are victims of domestic violence need culturally and spiritually sensitive services to help them and their children. When you support TMWF you are supporting this underserved population!
What is the Peaceful Oasis Shelter?
The Peaceful Oasis Shelter is a 24-hour crisis shelter run by TMWF for women and their children who are victims of domestic violence. It offers women a safe refuge and a welcoming place to start anew. We welcome individuals of all backgrounds, and we are also able to accommodate spiritual, cultural, dietary and language needs of Muslim women not addressed in the mainstream shelters.

Services include: 24 hour emergency hotline and shelter, case management and assistance, counseling, child therapy and legal services.

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.
