Overview

Who We Are: Muslim Women for All Women

In 2005, against the backdrop of a post-9/11 world, a diverse group of Muslim women representing different countries came together to launch Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation. Our goal: as Muslim women, to stand for peace and to make a positive contribution to the community in which we live.

From that meeting, Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation was born, along with our mission to empower all women and their families. We believe that by promoting and supporting women and their families, we can build stronger communities based in cultural awareness and understanding.

What We Do

Our mission is to empower, promote and support all women and their families, with a special focus on North Texas. We engage all members of the community – women, men, seniors, families and youth – in our programs, which provide:

  • Social and family violence services that foster peace and well-being in the home through our Peace in the Home Services and Peaceful Oasis Shelter, the first shelter in Texas to address the unique needs of Muslim women
  • Leadership skills development for Muslim youth to inspire the next generation to build a promising future for our society
  • Educational programs for Muslim and non-Muslim community members to learn about topics essential to individual and community welfare
  • Interfaith outreach to create greater cultural understanding

Our Impact

Since 2005, Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation has:

  • Served more than 1,000 victims of family violence
  • Provided social services and financial assistance to hundreds of families
  • Spearheaded the creation of the Contemporary Arab & Muslim Cultural Institute (CAMSCI) at the University of North Texas
  • Engaged Muslim youth in thousands of hours of community service
  • United Imams (Muslim religious leaders) in North Texas in a zero tolerance pledge against domestic violence
  • Created ongoing interfaith dialogues with our neighbors from Christian, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu and other faiths
  • Engaged the Muslim community, providing training and education on domestic violence, online safety for youth, mental wellness, financial literacy and women’s entrepreneurship
