About The Organization

IMAN - Inner-City Muslim Action Network

IMAN is a community organization that fosters health, wellness and healing in the inner-city by organizing for social change, cultivating the arts and operating a holistic health center.

IMAN, incorporated in 1997, was founded by an inter-generational group of students, residents, and community leaders united around the need to address violence, poverty, and decay in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood located on Chicago’s southwest side. Driven by their values of service, compassion, and social justice, they began a community assessment and examined alternative strategies to address these conditions. Soon they gathered the attention of community leaders, residents, and others across greater Chicago who shared their commitment to social change.

Over the years, the organization’s work has evolved in many areas. Currently, we operate a free community health clinic; provide transitional housing for formerly incarcerated men; empower youth in our leadership development program; and inspire change through arts and culture programming.
