TALITHA KUM PROJECT
(Our Second Women's Home)
It's name taken from the Aramaic language to mean :Little girl arise;" our second home designated primarily (but not exclusively) for Christian Women has recently come to fruition. Through this experience, we realize there's a common thread among disadvantaged women no matter their faith preferences that spiritually binds them in their collective struggle for upward mobility and independence! In partnership with the surrounding faith community, we are able to provide our women with the support and spiritual concepts to overcome the obstacles they face.
(Our First Women's Home)
In keeping with the mission of Huma-Faith, Khadijah's House is a residential safe haven primarily, but not exclusively, for Muslim Women and children to be sheltered, protected, nurtured, and cultivated in the way of their religious conscience without obstacles generally experienced in secular and/or other faith-based women's services.

Khadijah's House is located in the Fort Worth, Texas Area and exists in a peaceful, middle class neighborhood. In conformity with the mission of Huma-Faith, the women of Khadijah's House are charged with the responsibility of growing spiritually and addressing internal issues in order to break down any barriers that block the growth of healthy self-esteem, self-efficacy, realization of great potential, and the honorable position of womanhood. This is done through an eclectic approach of didactic learning, personal studies, and prayer.
Huma-Faith recognizes that women (esp. those with children) who find themselves in a homeless situation or under threat of being homeless are under-served. There are many reasons why women are found in this condition. In this day and time, some of the highlighted reasons for this are: domestic violence, abandonment (e.g. broken homes sometimes due to divorce), substance abuse/addiction, and/or unplanned motherhood in absence of a responsible partner (spouse). Purview of these situations, we're cognizant of the fact that there are underlying causes attributing to the lack of empowerment to change these conditions. Though Huma-Faith isn't a panacea to any social ill, we are committed to assist women in attacking root causes that binds them to these conditions by networking with the Helping Profession in order to access appropriate Social Services and within a residential setting create a spiritual environment in hopes of improving psychological strength.
