Underclass African-Americans in Jacksonville are bombarded with lack of reliable employment, affordable housing, and access to equitable growth. This isolation from the fruits of American prosperity has increased poverty levels that are aligned with such crimes as prostitution, robbery, assaults, and even murder. The Al-Islam Center's venue is in the heart of a negated community where such activities as mentioned regularly occur. 

Thus, to combat the problem through reformation activities the Al-Islam Center teaches life skills, conduct conflict resolution between individuals and gangs, provide minor health services like blood pressure readings and general examinations, clothing, food, and tutoring to students--even housing when applicable.

The overwhelming need for our services has caused an economic challenge and the need to expand the Center's venue. The funding will be used to enhance our infrastructure, offerings of services to the community.
