My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Umma-Urban Muslim Minority Alliance, Waukegan, IL, USA
I have been volunteering at UMMA Center since its inception and I am very passionate about. I was ecstatic when UMMA Center received the funding for setting up new computer lab; this resolved many technical problems we had to deal with obsolete donated computer. We have this enterprise level computer lab which the UMMA clients have access to and serve the community in general. Volunteering had been very satisfying experience for me, knowing that even few hours spent goes long way for the community.
UMMA initiatives are beyond any racial and financial bounds, throughout the years this organization grew in many folds and offered a variety of programs, not just education or counseling. I am particularly moved by the “Adopt a Refugee” initiative, everybody has their own personal struggles but it’s hard to comprehend a refugee’s life in new country. UMMA recognized this and has been successful at organizing, supporting and delivering help to refugees.
UMMA Centers staff have high level of dedication, putting in countless hours in operating the center and keeping it on track, motivating the volunteers and donor in the tough economic times.
I congratulate UMMA’s Staff, Board, Directors and Volunteers for being model organization.
