Dear NISA Supporters,
Assalamu ‘Alaykum,

We hope this letter finds you in the best of health and iman.

First, we would like to thank you for the overwhelming support and enthusiasm you have shown in our pursuit of acquiring a shelter for homeless women. Your generosity and willingness to help has been heartwarming, and frankly, humbling.

We recently requested funds to purchase a property identified as a 16-bedroom communal home. After further investigation we learned additional details about the property that would make operating a shelter from this address challenging. After a great deal of contemplation, we came to the conclusion to pass on this opportunity. This was not an easy decision. One of our key priorities, as always, is to be mindful and take the utmost caution when making decisions that involve investments with supporter’s donations.

Though this property did not work out, we have set your donations aside and are aggressively looking for another property that would be a better fit. We will keep you posted on our progress and continue to serve the NISA community in any way we can. If anyone would like to be reimbursed for their donation please send an email to

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us.
