Rooted in Islamic values, NISA strives to create a more just community in which people of all cultures and beliefs can participate. Our primary goal is to reduce the incidents of domestic violence and achieve domestic harmony among families through collaborative efforts with the community and other established organizations.
NISA provides services to all who seek assistance regardless of race, religion or gender.
NISA shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious affiliation, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, political opinion, pregnancy, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, ethical beliefs, medical appearance, disability impairment, or other medical or physical condition, educational background or veteran status.
The statistics show that domestic violence is on rise among the Muslim communities in North America. There is a dire need for the establishment of social welfare organizations, who can help and understand the plight of Muslims trapped in DV situations.
NISA was created, in October 2002, to play a positive role in elimination of this social condition within Muslim families.
