24-Hour Emergency Hotline
One in four women will experience family violence in her lifetime. It is a problem that is widespread in every ethnic, religious, cultural and socio-economic group. Abuse is never the victim’s fault. Nobody deserves to be beaten, raped, controlled, put down or isolated. Everyone has the right to live free of fear and to be safe.
Our programs are designed to promote peace in the home and community through a comprehensive strategy of prevention and intervention. We welcome individuals of all backgrounds, plus have a special ability to understand and address the needs of Muslim victims whose needs are not addressed in mainstream shelters and services. All services are confidential and free of charge.
Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation offers a full continuum of services to serve and support victims of family violence and their families from all backgrounds, with a special ability to understand and address the needs of the Muslim population. Our 24-Hour Family Violence Hotline (972-880-4192) and Peaceful Oasis Shelter provide women in crisis safe places to seek help and refuge. Our caseworkers then work alongside each family to develop a plan for their long-term safety and self-sufficiency.
Get help today by calling (972) 880-4192. We answer calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All calls are strictly confidential.
