Carolinas House of Mercy
Carolinas House of Mercy (CHOM) was founded by Seema Azad, Asra Khan, and Arshia Mehdi in Charlotte, NC in 2010.
Prior to the establishment of this organization, Mrs. Azad and Mrs. Khan have been known in the Greater Charlotte Muslim community as being very outspoken about the rights of women. In an unofficial capacity, they have been helping women in abusive situations for decades.
Over the years, support has been provided by soliciting contributions from sympathetic donors within the community. In 2010, CHOM was officially formed and in 2015 was granted nonprofit status.
