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."
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.
