Plano, TX, May 19, 2022 – The Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation (TMWF) would like to thank the Texas Bar Foundation for the generous grant. By having a staff that is trauma informed and culturally sensitive, it opens up an avenue for an underserved population to receive help with domestic violence issues. The legal department provides immigration support in areas of naturalization, obtaining work permits, and filing self-petitions or U-VISA under the Violence Against Women Act. There is legal staff that specializes in family law for clients’ divorce, child support services, and advocates on behalf of clients for the rightful custody of children to be reunited with their family. Through the Texas Bar Foundation grant, TMWF can continue to holistically serve all women.
“The people we serve is a specific population. This opens up a whole population who would normally not take these legal services.”- Legal Department Team Member
