The Asiyah Women’s Center is a survivor led-gender justice advocacy organization that operates the first women’s emergency center in New York City 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.

With WellMet's generous contribution, the Asiyah Center will continue our critical work of sheltering, feeding, and providing resources to women and children experiencing domestic violence. In addition, the contribution provided by WellMet will allow our center to connect survivors of domestic violence to job opportunities, a range of mental health and medical services, permanent housing facilities, health insurance, and legal assistance. Through WellMet's support, we will empower women and children to get back on their feet and persevere through deeply traumatic personal circumstances.
