Mission and Background:

The Islamic Center of Detroit (ICD) exists to serve the most vulnerable people within Metropolitan Detroit through the Muslim faith, Islamic principles, and a fundamental belief in assisting others. Officially opened to the public in January 2000, the ICD offers programming not only to its Muslim constituency, but also the underserved surrounding the Brooks, Fiskhorn, Warrendale, and Cody Rouge neighborhoods, and surrounding communities.

Accomplishments

In 2019, we were able to expand not only our programming, but also our footprint. ICD significantly expanded our services for children, youth, adults, seniors, and families that are most in need in the Metro Detroit area. In 2020, we fed our neighbors, trained our youth, and supported our senior citizens through a variety of educational, career/skill based, and wellness programming; not to mention serving 5,000 meals per day, feeding over 2,500 individuals through our food pantry, as well as serving nearly 2,000 others through our mental health counseling sessions (via zoom) during the Covid-19 pandemic. These programs remain ongoing. One of our greatest achievements for 2019 was winning the Art Van Charity Challenge! This fundraising event saw hundreds of nonprofit organizations across four states compete for a $100,000 grant. ICD was able to rally our members, friends, and other community representatives throughout the challenge, especially at the last minute, to raise nearly $350,000, to win the challenge and collect the $100,000 grant. In 2020, we participated in the Community Thrives Challenge through Gannett. We raised well over $200,000 and earned $15,000 in grant money during the competition.

ICD During Times of Need

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Islamic Center of Detroit (ICD) has been serving over 150,000 Meals weekly throughout 13 locations across the Metro Detroit area, to those most in need.

Additionally, we have opened our food pantry to nearly 2,000 individuals weekly; specifically for those that cannot otherwise feed their family. We are also offering the Youth in the community continued educational opportunities in order to close the gap in learning while our schools are no longer face-to-face.

Finally, ICD has been holding mental health teleconferencing (via Zoom) for those who need access to a licensed mental health professional.
In fact, requests for mental health assistance have increased three-fold since the start of Governor Whitmer’s stay at home order.
