RAHAMA HOUSING

And among His signs is this: that He created for you mates among yourselves so that you may dwell in tranquility with them. He has put love and mercy between your hearts; in that are signs for those who reflect.

Qur'an, Chapter 30:21

And among His signs is this: that He created for you mates among yourselves so that you may dwell in tranquility with them. He has put love and mercy between your hearts; in that are signs for those who reflect.

The members of RAHAMA will, Inshallah (God Willing) establish a transitional housing shelter for 6 to 8 women and their children. The shelter will be located near a bus line so that women will have easy access to transportation. This transitional housing will be a safe place where women are provided safety planning, counseling, education and referrals to the local resources that are necessary in their journey to healing. While no woman will be turned away we will cater to the unique needs of Muslim women which differentiates us from the other area shelters in Buffalo. We will be the only faith based shelter that offers support for domestic violence within an Islamic environment.

We will provide halal meals, a place to pray, and access to local imams. We currently offer culturally competent counseling for women and spiritual support by a group of dedicated social workers and volunteers. We also seek to dispel the myths about domestic violence in Islam with the women we serve and in the larger community.

In addition, we hope to offer a women’s support group in order to help in the process of dealing with abuse.
