“Oh you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses for God, even if it is against yourselves, or your parents, or your relatives, and whether it is against rich or poor (do not differentiate): for God can protect you both. Follow not your selfish desires so you do not swerve (from justice), or decline to do justice. Truly, God is well aware of all that you do. (Quran 4:135)
who we are
Our Peaceful Home (OPH) is a domestic abuse project of the Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition (MMWC). The MMWC is an organization with over 25 years experience in advocacy, education and outreach.
OPH began at the beginning of 2019 with funding from the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. OPH is a culturally specific domestic abuse program that provides culturally informed education, safety planning, intervention, emergency housing, and advocacy as well as qualified interpreters for victims and survivors. Our project has specific expertise with Muslim immigrants and refugees but our services are open to all.
MMWC board members and OPH staff are available to provide presentations to agencies, schools, service providers, institutions or any others who work with the Muslim population.
Our mission is to strengthen Muslim families by preventing all types of abuse.
We envision a world of strong harmonious families, free from any abuse.
