Our Story

Asiyah Women Center

The Asiyah Women’s Center is the first women’s emergency center in New York City and in New Jersey to address the gap of appropriate residential services for the Arab, Middle-Eastern, Muslim, South Asian (AMEMSA) and/or the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) population. Our mission is to provide temporary housing for victims of domestic violence and women facing eviction, and/or homelessness. By connecting under resourced women in our community to job opportunities, a range of mental health and medical services, permanent housing facilities, health insurance and legal assistance, we hope to empower women to get back on their feet and overcome their deeply traumatic personal circumstances.

Our center is an apartment that we rent, it can only serve 12-15 women at any given time. The Asiyah Women’s Center currently has 42 women and children on our waiting list, who are waiting to leave their abusers and receive a call from us with a bed placement. The distrust and fear of the city shelter system that Muslim women have, makes the Asiyah Women’s Center one of the only places they can trust during one of the most vulnerable times of their lives. In the coming weeks, we intend to rent a new location; this will allow us to house 12 more women and children at any given moment.
