Since its founding in 1996, Zaman has helped some of Southeast Michigan's poorest families achieve stability and self-reliance. We have grown substantially from our humble grassroots origins into a leading humanitarian presence with global reach.

As we begin to expand our efforts, we also grow resources and partnerships to better serve our local community.
