According to the NYC Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender based violence, domestic violence is a pattern of behavior in which one partner gains (or tries to gain) and maintains power and control over another intimate partner. One in three women in the U.S. experience some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. 

Oftentimes, survivors of domestic violence in the community are marginalized by intersecting challenges such as poverty, immigration status, lack of safe housing, and others. We work to seek solutions together and assist Muslim women and girls to empower themselves so they can become their own best advocates. Our team is culturally and religiously sensitive and speaks the following languages: Bangla, Dari, English, Hindi, Punjabi, and Urdu. 

Crisis Intervention

Our staff is trained to respond to survivors’ urgent needs like helping them seek safe shelter, filing a police report against an abuser, completing a petition for an Order of Protection, and even providing translation services at a police precinct. Our priority is to ensure clients’ safety and supporting them in making informed decisions. Survivors can reach us by calling or texting our helpline at 718-550-3586 Monday – Friday, from 10am to 6pm.

We provide free and confidential counseling and case management services for women affected by domestic violence. Our trained social workers and counselors provide over 500 counseling sessions each year, both in-person and virtually.

Sisters’ Circle Support Group

The Sisters’ Circle’s mission is to provide a safe space for women affected by domestic violence to connect, build community, learn, and empower each other. It is also a space to share resources, listen empathically, and help each other collaboratively in addressing day to day needs. Women in the group develop sisterhood by sharing experiences, recognizing each other’s strengths, learning about healthy relationships, and building self-compassion and self-confidence. The weekly Sisters’ Circle meets via Zoom every Monday from 12pm to 2pm. To join Sisters’ Circle, call our helpline at 718-550-3586 or our office at 718-262-8722.


The phrase “it takes a village” is part of our daily life here at Turning Point. Our staff regularly participates and presents at conferences and events, both locally and nationally, to raise awareness about the needs of Muslim survivors of domestic violence. We collaborate with other non-profit and government organizations through various coalitions to ensure our clients receive all the services they need to succeed.
