About Us

The 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 as a nonprofit in 1997 through the drive of people directly affected by and deeply invested in social issues affecting communities of color living on Chicago’s South Side. Since that time, IMAN has steadily grown and, in 2016, opened a second office in Atlanta to continue mobilizing a cross-section of people committed to this mission.

The organization models an integrative approach that employs holistic interventions to address a spectrum of structural and systemic injustices impeding a dignified quality of life for people in marginalized communities.

Through four programmatic thrusts, IMAN:

1.) Offers primary, behavioral, and oral health care through its community health center;

2.) Provides transitional housing and job training for formerly incarcerated men and high-risk youth through its Green ReEntry initiative;

3.) Organizes around issues such as criminal justice, housing, immigration reform and healthy food access;

4.) Inspires transformation through spiritually grounded, socially conscious arts and culture programming and creative placemaking.


To serve as the model of the Muslim tradition of facilitating transformational change in urban communities, by inspiring others towards critical civic engagement exemplifying prophetic compassion in the work for social justice and human dignity beyond the barriers of religion, ethnicity, and nationality.
