Domestic Violence Continues To Rise

Sacramento is home to Muslims from all over the world.

Unfortunately, in addition to the trauma endured back home and covid, domestic violence continues to be a rising challenge for all. Sacramento is receiving over 10,000 refugees from Afghanistan.  Refugees from Syria, Iraq, and other countries have and continue to arrive.

African-American and African immigrants or refugees make Sacramento their home.

Amanah (Safety) House

Five organizations have collaborated to open Amanah (Safety) House, the first domestic violence shelter opened to support Muslim women. While Amanah House is open to serving all women who are victims of domestic violence, this shelter is specifically tailored to adhere to the cultural and linguistic needs of Muslim women.

The five organizations include My Sister’s House, MAS Social Services Foundation (MAS-SSF), Al- Misbah, Masjid Annur, and ICNA Relief.

Our main goal is to provide a safe environment where our sisters and their children can start a new chapter in their life.

Help Women Escape Domestic Violence

Amanah House opened on October 1, 2021. We have received set up funding from SMUD to open Amanah House.

To continue to help women who are escaping domestic violence, we need your generous support.
