The Texas Muslim Women's Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to empower, promote, and support women and families through Educational, Outreach, Philanthropic, and Social Services. The organization was established in 2005 in an atmosphere where the voice of Muslim women was rarely heard and when the prevailing stereotype that all Muslim women are subjugated or ignored was widely assumed. TMWF is the first of its kind in North Texas to give Muslim women a strong voice and to address their needs thus highlighting the vital role of women in Islam.
TMWF is actively demonstrating that American Muslims are a peaceful, ethical and philanthropic community that cares deeply about humanitarian causes, diversity and equality. They have been on the forefront of establishing friendship and understanding through interfaith dialogue and TMWF youth have been enthusiastic ambassadors for six years through volunteering monthly in food pantries, feeding the homeless, working with the Salvation Army, and organizing toy drives for sick and needy children.
TMWF is proud to serve the Muslim community and are happy to assist them at all levels through the below mentioned programs:
-The Peace in the Home Program, serving over 600 families since 2011
- The Youth to be ambassadors of good will and service program
- By Co-sponsoring new projects like:
- Islamic Arts Revival Series, presenting at the Dallas Museum of Arts & the Eisemann Center
- Project Ramadan feeding 250 families
- Compassion for Fashion presenting young designers and
- Interfaith & outreach programs presenting the peaceful constructive Muslim community in the DFW metroplex.
TMWF will be honoring the National day of Service on January 21, 2013 by providing meals in South Dallas. Please visit www.tmwf.org for more information.
