Islamic Relief USA is a community of humanitarians—staff, volunteers, affiliates, supporters, partners, donors—who have been working together for a better world for 25 years.

Islamic Relief USA has experienced tremendous growth over the last 25 years. Beginning in a small apartment in Los Angeles, IRUSA's roots have spread to offices in nine regions across the country. For 25 years, the Islamic Relief USA family grew to become first responders in emergencies all over the world, including at home in the United States. They joined the ranks of the top leaders in the development sector, supporting programs that lift families out of poverty in some of the most destitute communities. Today, Islamic Relief USA celebrates a legacy of service and hope and aims to complement the incredible humanitarian work being done all over the world.

Islamic Relief USA has worked with many organizations over the years, formed strong alliances, and achieved great milestones, including partnering with the American Red Cross, Catholic Relief Services, ANERA, and more. IRUSA has grown to provide service in over 30 countries around the world, and intends to continue not only widening its reach, but always looking for ways of improving the quality of relief and development.
