Who We Are
Baitul Salaam Network International, Inc. (BSN) is a nonprofit domestic violence awareness organization. The term Baitul Salaam means “House of Peace” in the Arabic language. BSN is designed to be a refuge for victims of domestic violence who are experiencing danger and distress in their own homes. In the Islamic month of Ramadan in 1997, BSN formed with a group of four Muslim women who were all experiencing some form of domestic violence. These women were able to overcome their circumstances by joining together, supporting each other, and finding purpose in being able to help others who were confronting the same challenges. While BSN does not limit its services to Muslim women, it does have a special sensitivity to those of the Islamic faith. We understand the importance of working within the Islamic guidelines for clients who require it.
BSN is open to helping anyone who requests help. We do not judge. We are a resource for victims of domestic violence as well as those who are experiencing financial hardship and need assistance.
