Ramadan is a time many of us spend with loved ones: family, friends, & community members. Ideally it is a peaceful time where one can safely reflect on the past year, connect with Allah, and feel a sense of community.
Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the peace and safety they should. This Ramadan, join us in supporting our mission of ensuring everyone has a peaceful home in Ramadan, and year round.
With the purchase of our second shelter, Musarrat Home, we now have a second space allowing us to take in more clients and serve more families.
Help us this Ramadan by sponsoring a room, becoming a willow tree founder, or by becoming a sustainer. Absolutely any and every amount helps in getting our shelter well on its way to becoming a peaceful home for our clients.
Ways to Give
Thank you for being a #PeaceChampion this Ramadan!
We are so excited to introduce our 2019 Youth Council and their new programming. You can read more about the program here, and sign up for their newsletter to stay up-to-date with their events and volunteering opportunities!
Since 2012 our Peaceful Oasis shelter has served as a haven for Muslim and non-Muslim women and their families escaping abusive households. However, due to high need, we are increasingly having to turn away more than 30 clients per month, amounting to more than 360 clients per year. With current zoning restrictions, we were unable to further expand the Peaceful Oasis facility, but thanks to a generous family, we were able to purchase a second property, Musarrat Home, to serve as a second shelter and address the growing need.
With the property secured, we need your help to transform it into a comforting and safe space for our clients! Help us fulfill the name “Musarrat,” meaning happiness in Urdu! Learn how you can help here.
More details to be announced!
