The Texas Muslim Women’s Foundation is grateful to have been chosen as a Foundation Beyond Belief Challenge the Gap Beneficiary in 2015. The support we received has helped us to continue to bring hope, healing, and self-sufficiency to individuals and families in need.  Last year, marked our 10th anniversary and the honor of being a Challenge the Gap Beneficiary has affirmed that our programs and services are filling the critical needs of our community and society at large.
