Take a stand against Abuse!
Peace in the Home: Combating Abuse in the Home
Our programs are designed to promote peace in the home and community through a comprehensive strategy of prevention and intervention. Prevention methods involve the religious leaders in trainings about dynamics of Domestic Violence; while intervention consists of specific services rendered by qualified social workers promoting self-sufficiency and self-determination and working against false stereotypes.
Dynamics of Abuse
Domestic violence is a pattern of controlling and intimidating behavior which includes physical attacks, threats of harm, emotional and psychological attacks, economic coercion, financial abuse, use of religion and culture, and other such means used against one's intimate partner.
Major Types of Abuse
Abuse is never the victim's fault. Nobody deserves to be beaten, raped, controlled, put down and/or isolated or face any other form of violence. Everybody has right to live free of fear and to be safe!
"He created for you mates from 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." (Quran 30:21)
"...either remain together in equitable terms, or separate with kindness." (Quran 2:229)

Short and Long - Term Client Services
Sometimes we feel stress in our lives when daily tasks can become overwhelming and unmanageable. We believe that when this happens it can create feelings of loneliness and hopelessness and we are unable to cope. During these times it can be helpful to seek counseling.
"Understanding how to manage your emotions is kind of like building a muscle, it takes some time and can be a frustrating process but in the end, you come out stronger. As your counselor, we will work together to build that muscle by learning coping skills and techniques that will help reduce your stress. I believe that by working together, you will be able to identify, evaluate and change thoughts that may not be working in your life; and, as a result, you will most likely be positively-affected."
