Engage, Expand & Enhance


ENGAGE, EXPAND & ENHANCE
The Islamic Center of Southern California was established 65 years ago. This year, we have intensified our community-based outreach, added one more satellite location and beautified our center. In order to successfully succeed in our mission this year we need your generous donations! PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR ISLAMIC CENTER TODAY!


ENGAGE: Community Based Outreach
The Islamic Center of Southern California has geared its programming efforts towards interfaith collaborations, mental health awareness, expanded religious and family-oriented Sunday Programs, growing our food pantry and a refugee assistance initiative.
• We continue to foster interfaith and community relations with important events like our recent Open Mosque Day Festival.
• Through our Safe Spaces (mental health) program, we are able to provide free professional counseling services to over 100 individuals.
• In addition to our ongoing classes and Sunday Program, the Center also organizes other activities such as hikes, basketball tournaments and yoga class.
• The ICSC food pantry has grown to serve 160 people/week, feeding over 2000 people/month.
• Our refugee assistance initiative has organized the collection of school supplies and clothing for local refugee children.


EXPAND: Satellite Locations
We have two successful satellites in Santa Monica and Pasadena. This past April, we opened our Pasadena location. 
• In addition to the Center on Vermont, Jum'a prayer services are offered weekly at our two satellite locations in Santa Monica and Pasadena.
• Our Family Night programs are expanding to include youth and adult lectures, classes, potluck dinners and other fun family activities.
• We plan to open additional satellite locations.



ENHANCE: Center Beautification

We have recently begun a beautification initiative at our center.
• Our Lecture Hall has received a facelift with a fresh coat of paint and new carpeting.
• A variety of drought resistant succulents have been planted to brighten up the entrance.
• The non-slip outdoor threading on our entrance stairs has been replaced.
• We are preparing for more renovations in the Lecture Hall, the remodeling of staff offices and a new tent for our food pantry.
