Who we are

Take a tour of our Home

"Women are one half of society which gives birth to the other half so it is as if they are the entire society."

-Ibn Qayyim


Despite the 800,000 Muslims living in the city,

public shelters unfortunately lack the cultural competency  necessary  to address the needs

of the women who stay at our center. It is our

team’s familiarity with the intricacies of the

religion and culture of Islam that has

enabled us to provide not just a temporary

place of safety, but of empowerment. 

 The first Muslim women & family’s shelter in

NYC, The Asiyah Center (under MSB) provides

temporary housing to some of the most

vulnerable members in our community.

While created to be a safe haven for survivors

of domestic violence; our doors and services

are open to others including refugees,

undocumented women and Muslim women

facing eviction or homelessness   .

Our current home:

-6 bedrooms


-20 beds


-2 bathrooms




-Living room
