ICFA develops spiritual, intellectual and physical resources to foster family stability, promote communal and societal advancement with due diligence and excellence. Recognizing an emerging need for family support services on Staten Island, and located in an area where the heart of the area’s immigrant community lies, our organization fulfills its mission by providing a wide array of services via our established community development center.
Based on the number of individuals served by our programs in 2017, and our inability to meet the demand, we are seeking funding for the expansion of our social services assistance initiatives, which ensure our constituents are able to meet their families’ most basic needs and gain access to mainstream services and benefits to which they are entitled; our ESL programs, which provide immigrants the ability to effectively communicate and become employable; and our youth and adult education programs.
Our overarching goal is to create a community that fosters family stability through Islamic values, education and social activities.
This is accomplished by:
- Improving the delivery of social services to families in the community.
- Fostering economic growth by reducing isolation from resources.
- Strengthening social stability by increasing civic engagement and English proficiency.
