MCHC is a great non-profit organization that aims for the best interest of the community—especially the underserved population. They not only provide affordable and outstanding medical care to all, but also provide educational and informative events; and a space for the elderly to spend and enjoy their time. Overall MCHC provides countless opportunities for its community members and welcomes everyone with open arms regardless of background.

MCHC is a team of volunteers and team members very committed, professional, full of passion and dedication which,shows, truly reflects and surpasses in their work in comparison to many places I have visited, seen and experienced. MCHC as a nonprofit embodies the best spirit and values of our state and nation. They help thousands of individuals and families yearly. They educate, enroll, treat and help many individuals and families without discrimination of their financial class (uninsured,under insured or insured) on a daily basis.. MCHC also give shape to our boldest dreams, highest ideals, and noblest causes. They turn our beliefs into action - as promoters of health, champions of the common good, laboratories of leadership, protectors of privacy, responders in times of need, speaking our language contributing to the economy and weavers of community fabric.

I have been a member of the Sakina center, one of the wings of MCHC which serves seniors three days a week with health and welfare classes besides the volunteers teaching seniors Arts and Crafts, sewing, cooking, gardening, movement and much more. From time to time seniors are taken out on exciting and knowledgeable tours. Recently registered seniors are provided with healthy lunch twice a week courtesy of the city of the Milwaukee at a nominal suggested $3 a meal.
MCHC takes great care of seniors besides running a clinic for all and everyone without discrimination. By the way seniors clinical vitals are taken by a local philanthropist pharmacy Hayyat every month besides presentations on health and wellness.
Keep up the good work folks.

I feel honored to be a part of MCHC as this organization is dedicated to help individuals with all ethnic backgrounds who have all kinds of challenges in life. Staff is very compassionate and they have multicultural approach. I value their mission and willingness to provide quality care and treatment to all patients and their families. As a Mental health professional I strongly believe that a healthy mind needs a healthy body. At MCHC patients receive interdisciplinary care from both medical and mental health professionals.

MCHC has opened its doors to helping many new refugees and low income patients. The doctors and staff come from various backgrounds and cultures to provide the best treatment for their patients. Translators are available to help break the barrier between patients and staff. I would recommend MCHC for everyone!

What started as a 6 week volunteering service teaching crochet to seniors at MCHC turned into a passion for volunteering that had led me to volunteer every week as an Art and Craft teacher for the last one and a half year.
I never knew that giving my time to others can actually be so rewarding.
The people I met here are honest, genuine and appreciate each other. We have shared many laughs, gone on many field trips and even cooked together. The social and personal connections I made in such a short time are amazing.
Seeing staff and other volunteers step out of their comfort zone to help others is amazing. The love they have for the less fortunate and elderly is incredible. When it comes to things like making refugee hygiene baskets or walking for a cause, everyone helps.
Communication has been a key to MCHC's success. Things like having an open-door policy helps us do our best work and I feel comfortable asking questions. The love and respect I have gotten as a volunteer makes me keep coming back to help and volunteer. It's the attitude of doing whatever it takes to make others happy that keeps me motivated and charged.
