“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Social determinants of health (SDOH) are non-medical factors that affect health outcomes. They include the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age. SDOH also includes the broader forces and systems that shape everyday life conditions.”

Our Vision

Uloma Immigrants’ House’s vision is to construct better and healthier communities for the underserved population by providing innovative and effective social services to their residents.

Our Motto/Slogan

Our motto, “a house unique to be called a home.”, is the essence of founding the Uloma Immigrant House. Our House provides a sense of belonging to a welcoming community, a home away from home.

Our Goals

To provide necessary resources for the underserved population, which includes, but is not limited to immigrants/refugees, who want to successfully live in the U.S.A. by adapting to American culture while maintaining their uniqueness.

In order to prevent cultural shock in the immigrant community, the community residents will utilize our house (Uloma community) as part of the process. Gradual procedures will be undertaken while many aspects of life’s needs are being met spiritually, intellectually, and physically, like learning the English language, developing new skills like driving, and attending school for needed skills for careers and other interests. The residents will be given the opportunity to feel at home while gradually adapting to the new world and culture. They will learn how properly to shop for food and clothes, read maps and understand directions, develop new skills, and improve on already possessed ones.

These can be accomplished through the provision of quality services, caring with professionalism, and incorporating hospitality with moral values and respect for humanity and human rights. There will be embracement of diversity and uniqueness of personality without discrimination based on age, race, gender, or sex. Uloma Immigrants’ House is committed to upholding, beholding, and sustaining these morals and values.
