“As salamu alaikum, I am a muslimah faced with a lot of trials and I was trying to stay focused on my deen and my family was against me because of my religion. I heard about Women Affairs of Al-Mumtahinah Home Inc. shelter for homeless women and children. I needed to be in an Islamic environment and contacted the owner, and she took me in. When I came there the owner and the sisters that live there helped me and supported me with my religion, a place to stay and the emotional distress that I was experiencing. Since I have been here I have established peace and tranquility within my self they have helped me with resources with employment they have helped me established my relationship with my children and overall helped me to bring my self esteem back up they have helped me with clothing, food, Islamic literature etc.. Insha’Allah you will continue supporting the shelter."
"As salaamu alaikum, I have a four month old son. I have just recently moved in the shelter (Women Affairs of Al-Mumtahinah
Home Inc.,) at the beginning of August of 2009. The reason why I came to the shelter was because I needed to stay on top of my
deen which it was hard for me to do while I was living with my father which he was against it. As of now the shelter is helping
me in many ways."
"The shelter gets many donations which helps me gets the things I need such as pampers ,clothes, toiletries and also a crib
