The Muslim Community and Health Center of Wisconsin mission is to strengthen the Milwaukee community and increase the well-being of its residents by providing free and charitable health care services, social services, counseling, emergency assistance, educational and job-training programs. MCHC’s guiding principles are based on the Muslim values of compassion, kindness, peace, and diversity.
MCHC vision is to provide quality healthcare to under-served populations in Milwaukee and across Wisconsin using our guiding and core values of respect, stewardship, compassion, ethics, teamwork and above all quality.
MCHC, then named CHP, was founded in 2004 by Fozia Ahmed, a volunteer and active social community member to establish social services for the Greater Milwaukee Community. In 2008, the first Muslim-Run Free clinic was established with the help and support of volunteer doctors to provide services to uninsured and under-insured, to address the need for insufficient healthcare for many immigrant and refugee populations. In 2012, the name of the organization which initially began as CHP was changed to Muslim Community and Health Center, MCHC. The MCHC clinic has served thousands of patients to date. In April, 2015 MCHC moved into its new space, which included MCHC Clinic, Sakina Senior Center and other social services. In 2019, MCHC initiated its expansion project, which is to increase speciality services, as well as, increase space for our ever growing senior community.
