JAB Industries Transforms Bronx Building into Safe Haven for Muslim Women

JAB Industries, a premier construction and renovation firm, is proud to announce the successful conversion of a 3-story commercial building in the Bronx into a secure and nurturing shelter for Muslim women who have suffered from domestic violence. The project, commissioned by the nonprofit organization Pillars of Peace, provides a safe space and essential resources for women in need.

The building, formerly a daycare center, has undergone a comprehensive interior renovation to accommodate the specific needs of the shelter’s residents. JAB Industries’ skilled team has optimized the space to comfortably house bedrooms across the three floors, creating a haven for women and their children.

“At JAB Industries, we recognize the transformative power of a well-designed space. Our team has worked diligently to create an environment that fosters healing, safety, and empowerment for the women and children who will call this shelter home. We believe that everyone deserves a safe and comfortable place to live, and we are honored to contribute to this critical mission.” said Jeremy Singh, CEO of JAB Industries.

The renovation included the creation of six new bedrooms, each thoughtfully designed to accommodate 2-3 residents. The rooms have been furnished with comfortable beds, ample storage space, and soothing color schemes to promote a sense of peace and tranquility. Three bathrooms were completely remodeled, featuring modern fixtures and finishes that prioritize both functionality and aesthetics. A new plumbing system was installed to ensure reliable water service throughout the building, guaranteeing that residents have access to clean water for their daily needs.

The kitchen also received a full renovation, transforming it into a warm and inviting space where residents can gather to prepare and enjoy nutritious meals together. The updated layout and state-of-the-art appliances facilitate the preparation of healthy, culturally appropriate dishes, while the dining area provides a comfortable space for residents to connect and build a sense of community.

To ensure the safety and security of the residents, JAB Industries installed a state-of-the-art camera system (CCTV) to monitor the premises. This advanced technology allows staff to keep a watchful eye on the building, ensuring that residents can feel secure and protected at all times. Additionally, a new fire alarm system was implemented to meet all safety requirements, providing an extra layer of protection for the women and children residing in the shelter. This buildout was designed in compliance with NYS OCFS regulations.

Recognizing the importance of outdoor spaces for children’s development and well-being, JAB Industries installed new playground mats in the backyard area. This safe and cushioned surface provides a dedicated space for children to play, exercise, and engage in recreational activities, promoting their physical and emotional health. The playground area offers a respite from the challenges these children may have faced, allowing them to experience the joys of childhood in a secure environment.

To protect the privacy and security of the shelter’s residents, the exact location cannot be disclosed. JAB Industries has taken the necessary precautions to blur any identifying features in the project photos, such as windows that might reveal the surrounding area. This commitment to confidentiality ensures that the women and children seeking refuge at the shelter can feel confident in their anonymity and safety.

This renovated shelter will primarily serve as a sanctuary for Muslim women who have experienced domestic violence, offering them a path to safety, healing, and empowerment. We are grateful for JAB Industries’ dedication and expertise in bringing this project to fruition, and we look forward to the positive impact it will have on the lives of the women and children we serve.” said Karim Ahmed from Pillars of Peace
