Muslim Women in Action is a non profit 501c3 Muslim American organization our mission is to eradicate homelessness as much as possible and to help women and their children through the situation of homelessness. We aim to provide an immediate emergency shelter to protect the family from futher hardship as they work through this difficult life situation. Homelessness has a profound impact on the development of the family structure the women and the children experience feelings of anger, self blame, sadness, fear, and hopelessness; often times they have significant histories of interpersonal violence and the Children often times witness the violence and are more likely to exhibit frequent aggressive and antisocial behavior, increased fearfulness, higher levels of depression and anxiety, they also have a greater acceptance of violence as a means of resolving conflict which is destructive to themselves and the society. 1 of every 4 homeless women is homeless because of violence committed against her but there are also other factors that contribute to the crisis of homelessness including inadequate housing, shelter options, evictions, discrimination, and poverty, and because of these barriers many women remain in an abusive relationship.
Muslim Women In Action aim to provide emergency shelter assistance and other charitable work to alleviate the pain of the families suffering and in need of relief and focus on sustainable programs that tackle the root causes of the situation. Among all homeless women, 60% have children under age 18 and most single-parent families are female-headed (71%) and as such, are extremely vulnerable to homelessness.
Our Goal: is to rebuild our urban communities by empowering women back to their natural G’d given roles of nurturing and redirecting the energies of younger African-Americans ; to a more positive productive position culturally, socially, and economically.
Our Vision: is of a time when the mwia organization will have a successful global presence as a life changing outcome for the many women with children we have served; and that all women will embrace their empowerment of a one global contribution to the existence of Muslim Women In Action Homeless Shelters through the US and abroad.
Ultimately it is through increased community connectivity that we will address the critical challenges and improve stability and self-sufficiency for homeless women in general and homeless Muslim women in particular; see the picture and help us fill the void in the lives of the most vulnerable of our society let's help them back to dignity and a stable probuctive community life.
