Our Program

Domestic violence is prevalent in every community, and affects all people regardless of age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. Through opening the Baitul Hemayah Shelter, Penny Appeal USA is providing a safe-space to women who are otherwise unable to escape drastic situations.

Facts & Figures

85% of domestic violence victims are women.

in the United States, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner, adding up to more than 10 million women and men yearly. This also has negative effects on children who are exposed to domestic violence; approximately 5 million children are exposed to domestic violence every year, more likely to attempt suicide, abuse drugs and alcohol, run away from home, and 3-4x more likely to perpetrate similar violence as adults..
