2 Program Summary Chicago is the largest city in the Midwest covering a wide region, about a 100 mile radius The Muslim Community in the Chicago area is expanding quickly, with the “demand” exceeding the “supply” of the community’s needs The western suburb Muslim community is the largest in the region and its imperative that ICNA takes a leading role in this community This building will help ICNA achieve the leading role and provide for the community’s needs. It will also serve as the North Central Regional office for all its departments

4 Islamic Learning Foundation (ILF) This will help develop Islamic Education,which is in great demand for all, brothers and sisters, young and old It also has many rooms that can be used as classrooms where the ILF classes can be conducted.

6 Youth Center There are a few Mosques, Musullas, Islamic schools in the area, but non of them cater to the needs of the youth With the help of Young Muslims (YM), this will serve the needs of all the youth in the area, including the sisters who are usually neglected This can also be used for helping youth with their studies, both secular and Islamic, and provide a source of mentorship for them to become future leaders

7 ICNA Sisters The needs of the sisters is also growing with an increase in their membership This will provide for a space to hold their Quranic classes, Islamic education classes, and seminars which are held overnight. These overnight seminars can be held here instead of a basement of a Mosque Can also be a place to expand their services to the Muslim women in the greater Chicago area

11 Benefits This building is accessible and located close to major highways Will not need re-zoning from the city since it is already a church building Enough space for parking in the building lot as well as adjacent areas The current owners will be tenants for the next 2 years so this will provide for an income for at least 2 years Building can become the Headquarter for the Unit and it will give the Unit a leading role opportunity in the region
