Charity Starts at Home

Did you know that 1 in 5 children in America are living poverty? Or that nearly half of all Americans live paycheck to paycheck?

Homelessness, hunger, and poverty aren’t just international problems. That’s why Islamic Relief USA proudly funds hundreds of projects across America that make sure families have shelter, kids have food, and disaster survivors and refugees get the support they deserve.

In 2019, Islamic Relief USA served Qurbani meat to more than 21,000 neighbors in need, and over 5,000 Ramadan food packages.

We support hundreds of US projects, like: Thanksgiving Turkey distributions; Chicago’s Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) health clinic; annual Day of Dignity events; acclimation programs for refugees; zakat programs for families experiencing emergencies; and more!

Support struggling families across the United States by donating to IRUSA now. We make sure the aid you give reaches neighbors in need across America—your aid is their relief.

Disaster Response Team (DRT)

The Disaster Response Team (DRT) at Islamic Relief USA stands ready to serve communities in times of disaster and moves as quickly to give urgent relief to those hit by tragedies. DRT often also provides long-term recovery.

DRT has responded to more than 30 disasters since its inception in 2011, such as California wildfires, the Parkland, FL, shooting, and Hurricane Harvey in Texas or more recently, Hurricane Dorian across the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, and the US Eastern seaboard and the October 2019 Texas Tornado that destroyed homes across Dallas.

Long-term recovery efforts, like muck-outs and home rebuilding for survivors of 2016 Hurricane Matthew in North Carolina or of 2017’s Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, are also critical, and continue so that those affected get the help they need.

None of this would be possible without your support.


Expand the reach of humanitarian work.

Support long-term and emergency aid.

Inspire others to join the movement.
