The Islamic Center of Detroit (ICD) is a 501C3 tax exempt non profit organization that 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.
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.
